Customer Question
Hello, I was moved to California...
Hello,
I was moved to California for a job in July of 2015. I was never given a job description but was put on a performance plan in January of 2016 for performance issues that I was not allowed to comment on. Today I was sent - accidentally I might add - a demotion letter. I am being 'offered' a new position with a 45% pay reduction that I need to accept by Friday or apparently I don't have a job. I am the only female manager in the project office and it is clear that this is a way to get me to leave. I am also being told that if I accept the position I will have to relocate to Fresno in June, something I never agreed to when I accepted the position. Please let me know if I have any recourse.

Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Do you suspect that this is happening to you because you are female? (You mention your gender which is why I ask) If so, why? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.

I would like more of a reply than what I just got for $50. Can you tell me if I have any position here?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
