Recent WARN questions

My employment was recently terminated and my employer did

My employment was recently terminated and my employer did not disclose the reason. When I applied for unemployment in Texas they communicated to them that I was fired for failure to perform. I had been leading a team of over 120 people on a large project that was over 95% complete and they owed me a remaining bonus in the amount of $25K upon being released, and they I believe that it is the motive behind my release just prior to completing the project. Do I have a legal avenue to pursue?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was leading on the project for almost 4 years and getting paid over $20K per month on average during that time. Would an employer pay someone that much for that long if they did not do a good job.

I was fired today for tardiness, my manager really doesn't like me. I am tardy quite often maybe 15 min later about once a week . But most of all the employees are and they are not warned . I have never called out sick once and other employees are excessively calling out. She is picking on my and then chose to fire me. I feel that the policy is not equally treated.

I'm 66 years old. My employer terminated me with no notice

I'm 66 years old. My employer terminated me with no notice and without even telling me. I was a commissioned salesman and was helping train a new director of Maintenance 8 hours a week. I was told that was no longer needed but not that they were terminating the commission agreement. This happened some time in March but I had to repeatedly ask why my company email quit and why I was not getting commission statements. Finally I was told I had been terminated and the fedex checks I was receiving were for sales booked prior to my termination date. I have never been verbally warned for any reason nor in writing or given any goals or direction that wasn't met. In fact I was one of the leading sales people by dollar volume. I am told my accounts have been given to a lesser paid person and they are happy with the results. Thank you, Matt.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will. Full time salesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm sure they know but I believe Minnesota requires 30 days written notice for employees over 65.

My boss just fired me saying I am not the right fit for the team. The feedback she gave me was things that were fixable if she told me this before. Instead she never gave me feedback even after I've asked her for it. The only time she gave me performance feedback was when she fired me. I've been working there for a year.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Do you mean have I reported it?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know what my rights are in this situation.

The company I work for is being acquired in a merger. Like

The company I work for is being acquired in a merger. Like many others at the company, we began job searching. I received another offer and the future employer is willing to wait until the merger occurs. I have not submitted a resignation notice because two months ago I was given a termination letter from the acquiring company. My job will be eliminated on day one of the transaction. Two weeks ago I inquired about the severance and accrued bonus amounts in the termination letter and the HR representative told me that she put me in the system as a pending resignation because I have another job lined up. However company policy requires written notice of a resignation.She found out about my future job because she is friends with someone in the HR department of the future company. So she is telling me that I am not eligible for the severance, but I never submitted a resignation since I was given a termination letter.I don't know what to do.
