I am off today with pay and will be informed of whats going on Tuesday the 29th. I am finding out all my options because I am close to retirement and would like to stay. However we have lost 9 employees in the last 6 to 9 months due to poor working conditions.

Thank you. Do you have any idea what the policy of the employer is in regard to such Investigations? Also, do you think you will be terminated for helping the doctor? OR do you feel that older employees are being targeted?
