I have been on probation at work for almost two years but

Customer Question

I have been on probation at work for almost two years but have been employed for 28 years at this establishment I believe i am going to be fired in two weeks when the CEO is back in two week and another manager accused another employee that she told me that i was going to be fired . The writing is on the wall do I have a legal case for more money if i get a severance
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: BC
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Full time and no union
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: They tried to write me up on a file and send me home for two weeks without pay but when i informed them it was not my file they couldn't send me home and they did nothing to the other employee that handled the file

I am sorry to hear this.Why do you think they're doing this after all this time?Why were you put on probation two years ago? I'm just asking generally to get a better picture of the situation.
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
They say I did not know how to do my job and so they were going to give me more training and have updated with my performance and none of that has happened

I am at work so can I call later

Let's continue this evening then or even during the weekend. I am around most of the time.

When you want a call you would click on the call button.

It is certainly best not to communicate further while you are at work.
