I need info on employee matters in NYC

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

At will

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Wife has been suspended from work and was not given any explanation or written notice. She is CFO of XCEL FCU,14 years , all performance evaluation excellent . THE BOD suspended her which is wrong. the BOD of credit union are volunteers and can only provide suggestions and advice they are not supposed to be in the mix in hiring and termination of employees

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Who does have authority to discipline or fire her? Does HR agree with the board's decision?

Do you believe you wife was treated differently than other employees due to her race, religion, ethnicity, etc.?

Her CEO, It has nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity
Employment Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Does the CEO object to the suspension?

I worked for UNFCU credit union for 38 years and the BOD were not allowed to get involved in employee decios
Employment Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Why can the CEO not reverse the order if the board is acting ultra vires?
