Yesterday I was told by my boss that I was being moved to a

Yesterday I was told by my boss that I was being moved to a completely different department that I would have never of applied for in the first place. The position is being forced upon me to take or resign from the company. I have been here for over 1 1/2 years I do not want the position for several reasons: the position is customer facing and the reason I took my current position in operations was to be non-customer facing 2. I know that the pay is significantly less than what I currently make in salary therefore, even them stating that my pay would remain the same, there is noway they would keep me employed once they found a less expensive person to bring in 3. there is alot of turnover in that department and treatment is unacceptable 4. I have never been reprimanded for any reason in my current position forcing me to take another position 5. A reason has not been explained to me as to why I am being moved when I have asked several 6. I am now starting to feel uncomfortable around my superiors in their lack of acknowledgement and mistreatment of me and I feel my only option IS to resign. The working conditions have become unacceptable. I had even asked to possibly be transferred into a department that more equals to my qualifications and was denied. I do not have another job lined up at this time although I am searching diligently but my fear is that if I resign (2 week notice) that 1. they will force me out early and 2. I will not be able to claim unemployment...please help, Tiffany

I have been employed at this company for a total of 12

I have been employed at this company for a total of 12 years. I quit in 2012 but was rehired 2 months later and have worked these ever since. I worked mainly in the parts and shipping departments but was also trained to work in general assembly. Our company has gone through many changes and after training someone else to do the shipping tasks, I was moved to general assembly. I was nhappy with the work environment and my supervisor in General Assembly but did what was expected of me and had no disciplinary issuses warning or counseling. In April of 2016 I applied and was granted time off under FMLA to attend rehab for 30 days. Upon my return I spoke to the General Manager and stated that I could not return o work in General Assembly and asked if I could be transferred to another department. He stated he knew I was a good worker and transferred me to the warehouse department working with parts and shipping. I was recently asked to train another person to do the same work as part of our cross training program. Today I was told that I was needed to work in General Assembly and asked if the other person I trained could go instead as I felt my going back to General Assembly would be detrimental to my health and would set me back in the progress I made since completing rehab. I was told by my supervisor and the General Manager to report to General Assembly. I again asked if there was another option and that if they forced me to report to General Assembly, I would have to leave due to my health concerns. My supervisor went to the General Manager and next thing I knew, HR came out and asked if I was unwilling to report as ordered to General assembly. I said that due to my health concerns I could not. I was then told to gather my belongings and was then escorted out of the building. I feel this was wrong as I had complied with the agreement to come back in another department, stated the concerns to my health by going back to General Assembly and asked for an alternative solution. I also feel this was in retaliation to my taking FMLA and they were just looking for a reason to terminate me.

I have an odd situation. I currently am employed by company

Hello,I have an odd situation. I currently am employed by company ABC. Company ABC provides outsourced services for company XYZ. Company XYZ has recently announced it is discontinuing the contract with company ABC.I am a member of their Senior "key management" team, but am under no specific contract restrictions.The client, company XYZ, has offered to pay bonuses to company ABC during the contract termination for company XYZ NOT to offer us alternative employment after the contract ends. This is due to company XYZ wanting to hire all employees and Senior Leadership to work directly for company XYZ without having competition of offers or loss of key management personnel.Can my company, ABC, really prevent me from being hired into a like/similar or vacant position internally so that I have to entertain an offer of employment from company XYZ? It doesn't seem fair to me. (Although may be perfectly legit, I'm just not sure)Kurtis

My daughter is employed in Singapore by an NGO headquartered

My daughter is employed in Singapore by an NGO headquartered in Calif. After 5 years, her ex-pat status expired and she remained with the project as an exempt, high level, employee. For several months the pay has been being readjusted downward and keeps changing. I just visited her and she asked for my assistance in what Calif law might say about these circumstances. They have even withheld pay. She loves the work, but not the salary drama. Where might I go from here to understand what the law says?thank you! Elaine ******

I work as a Bartender at the LAX Airport, we are a unionized

Hi, I work as a Bartender at the LAX Airport, we are a unionized workforce and I'm the Chief Shop Steward for the Union & our company. Earlier this month, an employee came up to me during work and asked "Do you have a f**king problem with me?" I responded with, "What are you talking about?" and she said "Stop spreading rumors." I have not done anything of such nature, we talked after my shift and she accused me that our boss isn't allowed over in our terminal (we have multiple concepts across the terminal) because of rumors that her and him were in a relationship, she threatened me saying she can get multiple statements against saying I was the reason for this. She said that he was under investigation which I had no idea about and was convinced it was cause of me. I told her it wasn't, now I'm uncomfortable working at my workplace and asked for a transfer which was denied even though our CBA says we have first opportunity to transfer when job availability comes up.I sent a statement to HR, no response, so I took it to Corporate at our Miami offices, still no response, this past Friday I left a message for corporate then the HR office in LA contacted me via e-mail that they want to speak about the matter. I told them Wednesday but still haven't gotten a response from them. I have the letter I sent to HR which had corporate in Miami and LA all posted in the same e-mail and still no response. I personally don't want to work there now and people are now gossiping that I'm somehow out to get other employees at my work place. I feel like this is a defamation of character and feel like I have to look over my shoulder or watch what I say at work. I'm looking into getting an attorney and would like to know the best course of action.
