I was demoted and moved from my position as an Account

I was demoted and moved from my position as an Account Manager with one of my company's customers at the customer's request even though I was performing at a level that met or exceeded my company's expectations. The reason given for the demotion was the customer had a bad "perception" of me. My company kept me on an account with the same customer in a lower position and at a reduced level of compensation and placed my subordinate in my old position. I was told I would not be allowed to move up in position as long as I stayed with this customer, yet my company refuses my requests to move me to an account with a different customer. Do I have any options, legally, to seek recourse?

I was fired due to policy violation I worked for Wells Fargo

I was fired due to policy violationI worked for Wells Fargo for almost 3years. I was hired as as a teller March 2014 and 11months later I became a personal banker. In October 2016, two weeks after coming back from my maternity leave I was terminated due to policy violation.When I was a teller in April 2014 I took my parents to Wells Fargo to open new accounts (requirement to meet sale goals). Wells Fargo requires the personal banker to open the account for the customer and get them sign up with at least 4products when opening a new acct which are checking, savings, debit card and online banking! When the personal banker who helped my parents open their accounts he asked for their email and my parents don't use emails, so the personal banker asked for my personal email and used it to set up their online banking. I became a personal banker February 2015 and I was always pushed to get more sales and more products from customers, every time I would let a customer walk away without online banking or a savings account my manager will question me and say I didn't push hard enough or asked enough questions to get them set up with all the services required!!! I would say they don't have an email address or they don't neeed a savings. In different occasions she even said I should grab the customers phone and check if they had an email that way I could set up online banking for them. As a personal banker I brought a lot of friends and family members to open new accounts and most of the time they didn't need a savings or didn't want online banking but due to all the pressure I had I would push them to get that extra savings and offer to use my personal email to set up their online banking. Since the personal banker who open my parents account used my email to set up their online banking I didnt see a problem with using my personal email to set up online banking for friends and family. I went on maternity leave June 3rd 2016 and went back to work on September 23rd 2016. Two weeks after coming back from my leave investigations department called me and started questioning me about my personal email address and why so many people had that email on their accounts, at this point I had completely forgot about that other banker using my email to set up my parents account so it looked like I came up with using my personal email all by myself. After being on the phone for about 30mins they said they had no more questions two days later I was terminated. Was my termination justified? Can I sue Wells Fargo for not giving me a warning or can I get any kind of compensation? customers most of them my family but a few were close friends or good customers of mine

When I became a U.S. citizen I changed my citizenship on my

When I became a U.S. citizen I changed my citizenship on my employer's employee info site and inquired if I had to do anything else. I was previously a lawful permanent resident and provided my green card as evidence of my right to work in the U.S. HR then insisted I REPROVE my right to work in the U.S. by demanding a copy of my citizenship certificate. Not knowing any better I complied, and they took a copy.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: U.S. citizen as of 7/15/2016. Later I learned they had no right to do this as my presenting my green card established my right to work in the U.S. permanently. The Employer guidelines are quite clear on this and that asking again (say when the green card expires) amounts to discrimination on the basis of national origin. I advised HR of this and requested they destroy the copy of my citizenship certificate they made, which they claim they did, but they have been hostile toward me ever since.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Other than informally or vial email to HR? No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The environment is politically hostile: I was warned that it was a Democrat shop and to "go along". I am very politically active OUTSIDE the office, never bringing up political issues inside, and requested and got, via email, assurances that my employer will not seek to curtail my external political activities. However, I still endure "left wing culture" in the office. Much of my family was wiped out by Hitler's national socialists and then robbed by Stalin's communists -- I am of Czech origin, and such a culture rising to the same hysteria that resulted in the murder of much of my family is very disturbing. My question is whether all this rises to the creation of a hostile work environment based on national origin.

There was no prior communicatio. Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I am a paraprofessional and I work with preschoolers . Like 3 or 4yrs ago I was reported by a teacher that I picked up a student , I did not know it was not allowed because I saw a teacher did the same. The dept. Head and the supervisor came to interview and gave me warning that if I do it again I will be fired.I was surprised by what they said and told them that same thing was done by a teacher. They said they will talk to her but presumed they did not because same teacher asked me to pick a kid after that. After thehe teachers wrote controversial evaluation which I wanted clarified.I asked for a meeting to make things specific and leave no room for confusion.The principal agreed to set a meeting but changed his mind after and sent my evaluation without a my signature.After I found out it was sent to HR I went there and told them what happened and I requested an interview which they granted but surprisingly after like 2 days they said it could not be done.
