Customer Question

I work at a retirement community that had been recently purchased by another company. It was effective May 5, 2017. They have not given me any support til recently. They had no fee schedules til August and did not have my leads database til July. Last week they gave me an improvement plan that states I must have ten deposits by Oct 31 or could face termination. I am very worried.

From facts mentioned, the decision is arbitrary and may be contested with HR by you or counsel. what is more, if the decision is based on your age or other discriminatory reason, it is illegal and may be challenged for that reason too. Often having counsel speak to HR sends a message not to proceed with such conduct further.
