Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

I am a lawyer in Ontario.

I am sorry to hear this.

What is your specific question please?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Well, I have been in the financial industry for over 33 years, and with my employer (terminated today) for 14 years. They gave me 1 years salary and a bonus. Seems like an ok deal, although, I know that my employer usually lowballed when they were dismissing past employees. Also, my current manager and I did not click. Nothing unprofessional here. At my exit interview I asked him if he was dismissing me due to our relationship, being that I was not his favourite person, and that we did not click. I have never been fired and always well liked by all my previous managers. He stated that was taken into the factoring decision. I'm certain that I would still be employed if he was not my manager. Want to know if I should ask for more money. I was in an admin HR type of role. Implemented many things in the department that were my sole doing. Since I haven't been unemployed well over 30 years, not sure how to navigate the situation. Thanks.

I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. As I am a lawyer in Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.

I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.

Can I go ahead?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Is the charge $5.
Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

I will ask customer service to contact you to explain what the charge is I don't know what it is myself. I don't work for the site but just log in the way you do and see a list of questions and choose which to answer.

After you speak to customer service if you want to go ahead reply back and let me know.
