I am a female that was hired from a competitor almost two

Customer Question

I am a white female that was hired from a competitor almost two years ago. I brought in over 3/4 of a million in sales for the company which was not prepared for the amount of business coming in. Since the growth in business they have neglected to get my deliveries out in a timely fashion and have cost the company almost all of the business brought in. They are now trying to phase me out of the company due to lack of sales in my area. Is there anything I can do or have any recourse to hold on to my job.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I am in Panama City , Fl
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: They hired me full time at a salary of 50k. They are threatening to take me to 15k and commission. Can they do this
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I have customers that have told me the loss of business is not due to me it is due to deliveries and lack of communication on the managers part. I am doing my job but they are not fulfilling the inventory end and the operations end. If I need documentation from these customers I could probably get it .

Do you have the commission agreement with them? On what basis are they threatening to take away your commission?
Are you in a union or do you otherwise have a contract for "just cause" (as opposed to “at will" employment which is the default employment condition)? Do you think they have an ulterior motive in trying to get you out?
