I was terminated yesterday simply stated reason of not being

I was terminated yesterday for a simply stated reason of not being a good fit. I had only been employed there for 11 months. I was subjected to a meeting on Thursday when quite expectantly, my new supervisor gave out a proposed job description for all to review to all attendees. I quickly surmised that much of my job was in that new job description, as was the case for other key employees in the room. Questions and frustrations flew out immediately, I found myself humiliated in front of my coworkers who were very much thinking what I was, "What is going on here? Why is my job being rewritten into another position, NO ONE ever discussed this with me! Even worse was when I questioned some of the key tasks as they relate to my job, I am being told not just by my supervisor but by another Director who is suddenly becoming the spokesperson for this new position that they are not taking away our jobs, just proposing different ideas for this new position. Myself and others were clearly upset, frustrated to hear this other director tell us what was best for our jobs. This man has no authority over me, or my job! My supervisor just let him take the lead and argue with me about what my job entails in front of everyone! At no point did my supervisor ever follow up with me, discuss with me how my job would change or offer support. Instead, without warning or reason, he simply told me on Friday afternoon that this was my last day and he terminated me offering a 3 month severance package. I am 60 years old, getting another job will be difficult at best. The lack of professionalism and the creation of a hostile work environment was just wrong. I f I accept the severance, I can not file any adverse action or suit but I have no other means of support! I will lose my home and car!JA: We have our lovely Black Belt Customer Support team available to help you 24/7.Email***@******.***In the US or Canada 1-***-***-**** Available 6am to 9pm PSTIn the UK 0***-***-****In Australia 1800-679-634In New Zealand 0800-452-621From anywhere else 1-***-***-****Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ArizonaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: The HR Director has many workplace practices documented such as targeted negative treatment, discrimination in pay based upon gender and bullying in the workplace.

I have resigned from my job with my present employer and I

Hi. I have resigned from my job with my present employer and I have been offered a job by one of the clients of my present employer. This client is not a competitor of my employer. My employer is into software development whereas the client is an insurance company. The client does not develop any applications that my employer does. My offer letter has the following clause. I would like to know if this clause in any way prevents me from joining the client."You understand and acknowledge that the provisions of this Section 5 are necessary to protect the legitimate business interests of the OSI and are fair and reasonable for numerous reasons, including your receipt of the specific considerations expressed in this Agreement, In addition, as a result of your executive position with the Company, you have had, and will continue to have, access to significant confidential, proprietary or trade secret information of the OSI, so that, if you were employed by a competitor of the OSI, there would be a substantial risk to the Company of your use of its confidential, proprietary or trade secret information. Based on the foregoing, for a period of one(1) year after the termination of your employment with the Company, you will not directly or indirectly: a) render any services to, or engage in any activities for, any other person, firm, corporation or business organization with respect to any product, process, technology or service, in existence or under development which substantially resembles or competes with a product, process, or service of the Company in existence or under development upon which you worked or exercised supervisory responsibility at any time during your employment with the Company"

I live in TN and my companies home office is in Ca. I got a

I live in TN and my companies home office is in Ca. I got a new manager and he decided I was too nice and not leadership material. There was no real communication or discussion about what I needed to do. So he decided I should go back to a field position. Which in all honesty I a fine with but I don't trust him. I have technical continued to do both jobs until they can officially post the position I am to move into. I think this is because I am taking the place of an employee who is on med leave after shoulder surgery. She was/is one of my direct reports. They plan to move her into a newly created position. I want to cover myself and not be told one day, well we don't need you. I have bee with Medtronic for 9 years. Thank you Christie.

I'm not sure if it an issue or not. In early 2014 I was demoted a step down the career ladder. This came as a shock. I petitioned the demotion and was told it was staying as is. My manager & director agreed to review with me and advise the areas I was falling short. Meeting never happened. I got HR involved & still no resolution. This carried on into 2015.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in Delaware, but HQ is Florida. Mid February 2015 I was involved in a random physical assault (not related to work). I went through all my vacation and sick time and had an approved unpaid leave of absence. I ended up being separated in September 2015. Still no reason/resolution to my demotion and HR said could not discuss while on leave. It is still very upsetting & I don't know what to do.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have not. I was just searching for information when you encountered me!JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I was employed for nine years and two months at the time I was separated. I have been in recovery (physical, emotional, psychological) and am now working with Vocational Rehab and my therapist to re-enter the work force. I just can't seem to bring myself to a point where I'm not thinking of what was so egregious that I was demoted. The alternative would have been to keep me at the Senior Staff level and let me know I wasn't cutting it. I would have been reviewed again in a year instead of the usual review every two years. Hopefully this makes sense.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
