I was called into a meeting with my manager and district
I was called into a meeting with my manager and district manager yesterday. They talked to me about my job performance but it was really more of a conversation about my personality. Then they read a performance improvement plan. They then had me sign the plan. I was very anxious in the meeting and I signed the plan without taking the time or asking to take the time to think over what it said.I have several concerns about it.It says I can be terminated at any timeIt says I lose my bonus because I am on performance plan.It fies give dates or times of my alleged lack of job performance nor does it give any measurable way to keep track of whether I am improving in their view.I want to know if I should ask to sit down again and redo the plan. Or if I should write a rebuttal .
State is WV. Wife messed up. After 25 years working for the
State is WV. Wife messed up. After 25 years working for the same state agency she got overwhelmed and forged a signature for some auditors. She was immediately escorted out of the building and given work to do at home.This was a week and a half ago. She received no written or verbal notice of firing. She has a meeting with HR this coming Wednesday. I read the employer policy and they can give her a warning letter, demote her or fire her, as what she did is considered gross misconduct. Policy also says they have to give her a written letter of intent to fire before they fire and so far this has no happened.My thoughts are whatever she does, don't quit. If she is fired she can get unemployment and she'll also get her annual leave that stored up as per policy, it's five weeks and that would be very helpful to our family.Any other suggestions? Not sure why she did it, at this point it doesn't matter, she got overwhelmed but the point is it's done and now we're just trying to respond in the most favorable way as our family moves forward. She makes more money than me and has our health insurance and we have three children.
I repeatedly notified my Direct Manager, who is the Plant
I repeatedly notified my Direct Manager, who is the Plant Quality Director as well as the HR Director of the industrial hydraulic plant I was employed with for almost 5 years of illegal refurbishment of defective product and resale to the same, or on some cases alternate customers as "new" product (this was being performed by the service department). On August 17th I found myself in a meeting with my Manager & the HR Director entitled "email from Heather Ragard". I had no idea what it was about. My Former Manager informed me that it was "a meeting intended to protect me" while we waited for the HR Director to arrive (he was 15 minutes late). When he arrived he had a written warning letter citing things such as "leaving the plant without authorization" (I had an approved / documented 1/2 day of vacation). Not submitting a report to Germany on time (I had an email from my Manager telling me he did not care about the report because he needed me to do something else). I honestly thought the meeting was to address my huge concerns over safety & reliability of the "refurbished sold as new" hydraulics. I have never had a verbal warning much less a "written" warning in my ENTIRE LIFE. I had a panic attack for 45 minutes which the 2 gentlemen watched. I gave my 2 weeks notice in an attempt to end the meeting because I couldn't breath & I thought i was having a heart attack.I had a follow up with my Primary Physican today (she has been treating me for stress & anxiety for over a year). I told her I was thinking about notifying the company ethics / legal department because to spite the fact that i have escaped the extreme anxiety, I'm still troubled deeply by the fact that something very wrong is going on & no one seems to care. My Physician said she agreed it was the right thing to do, but advised that I have an attorney of my own before moving forward (it is a very large company).Is this a valid point?
I have an employee Class A Driver whom has been employed for
I have an employee Class A Driver whom has been employed for 9 years, 65 years of age and has been having difficulties performing job duties and functions for the last two years. our company has always catered his work assignments to fit his abilities, however due to growth of company the ability to cater to his physical abilities is becoming difficult. he is going to be presented with a write up due to an infraction of hauling a load of Hazwaste that was not contained properly and then abandoned it in our company yard and left work stating he didn't have time to clean the truck leaving 5 personnel to finish his work. do we have grounds for termination? does he have any recourse against the company?

I was terminated unexpectedly on June 24th. I was terminated
I was terminated unexpectedly on June 24th. I was terminated as per my former employer due to not being able to multitask and not being able to follow new procedures which she now claims is misconduct. I was employed for the last 2 years as the front desk receptionist.I was given a severance pay of $7500.00 . I started receiving unemployment benefits in August 2016 and up to October 3rd. I was able to get a part time job on Sept. 22nd and have been reporting my gross income. I am still receiving unemployment benefits.I received today a NC Dept. of Commerce Division of Employment Security-Appeals packet stating I am being given a day and time which I will be contacted by an Appeal referee to speak with me to dispute the charges of misconduct spelled out in the packet by my former employer.It will be my word against my former employer. She has documented days in which she had to continuously remind me to correct mistakes which I did make, not intentionally, when I was learning new dental programs and learning how they wanted their practice to be for them and the patients for the last 2 years.I have some of my unemployment benefits left over since I have used some of the benefits to pay rent, utilities, etc.Should I go ahead and be present for the Appeal conference call on Nov. 1st or pay all of the unemployment benefits back with help from my family?

I live and worked in Texas. I gave my job my 2 week notice
I live and worked in Texas. I gave my job my 2 week notice and my last day was to be on the 23rd of October. I was then fired without warning on the 14th October before my 2 weeks were complete. By law those that were fired are to receive their final paychecks no later than 6 calendar days. Once I asked via email when I would receive my last paycheck I was told the following, "You gave notice, you were not terminated.”. I responded by saying that I was fired before my 2 weeks were complete and that I was available until the 23rd. I did not voluntarily quit before then. They then responded with, ““If the employee quits, retires, resigns, or otherwise leaves employment voluntarily, the final pay is due on the next regularly-scheduled payday following the effective date of resignation. If an employee resigns or gives notice they will be resigning, there is no provision in the Payday Law requiring employers to continue to employ the person until the date they intended to resign or to pay them beyond time they actually work. “” Who's in the wrong?

i was drugged at my workplace by my boss's friend, who gave me a candy without notifying me that it consists of illegal substance. my boss was the first who he gave the candy to and my boss was aware what it was. there is a window separating my room from my boss's room. he could clearly see his friend coming to me. I'm going to skip how sick i was after this for 4 hour. I never received apologies from my boss, he was behaving like he has nothing to do with that, and threatened to give bad recommendationsJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: nyJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at will full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: there are a lot of details which i skipped to make the story short
