Recent Voluntary Termination Questions

  • If an employee has barely started working in a job where he

    If an employee has barely started working in a job where he will be exposed to money, and then he gets let go all of a sudden a little while after he spoke the following to his supervisor:
    "Since I believe false accusations of taking money happens all too often in jobs where one is exposed to money, what can I do to ensure that I am in compliance with your cash handling policy? Please write down for me what I need to know and do here. If you cannot do that, then who can, because I feel vulnerable and need help?"
    Can the employer get sued for letting the employee go just because the employee asked this question to protect himself? Can the employer get sued for getting suspicious just because the employee asked a serious question? However, would filing a lawsuit also make it more difficult for the employee to find work in the future since an employer will probably not want to hire him if he has filed a lawsuit against an employer in the past?
    Thank you.
  • This statement is verbatim from the Mississippi military department

    This statement is verbatim from the Mississippi military department employes handbook. ( a veteran status of an applicant may increase the numerical rating of the applicant. A copy of employees DD 214 is required as proof of military service.
    A total of 5 points will be added for veterans status. A total of 5 points will be added for disable veteran status. Current documentation showing percentage of disability must be included. These points will be added to the final points awarded by the president of the hiring board only and are based on a 100 point scale. Points will be prorated to 3.75 for each of the above ranges when a selection board is comprised of a 3 board members). My question is they awarded the veteran employees 5 points and the board was comprised of 3 members panel and it was on a 75 point scale. I'm i interputing this wrong or should they have recieved 3.75 points and what should I do if the points were wrongly given.
  • My original manager left before she coud preform my 90 day

    My original manager left before she coud preform my 90 day review. The new manager of only 2 weeks gave me a degrading, horrible review and said that she was going to add on a 60 day probationary period. I have spoken with my original manager and she says the new manager is lying, she does not like me. The allogations that the new manager is accusing me of have no merrit and I have documentation that the actions of allegations never took place. I was uncomfortable signing the review and told the manager this. She said you are only signing that we had a review and I went over some stuff. I want to go to HR and discuss the lack of follow up on the accusations that my manager has stated in review and show my proof( a fellow emplyee will stake claim to what happened). Can I also go to HR and say I want to add on review that I signed under duress?
