i was placed under suspension on 11/15 for an abuse allegation. On 11/16 i received a letter from my employer stating that i was a former employee and if i wanted to cash out my 401k. i called the HR and they stated it was generated in error. on 11/20 i had a meeting with the investigator to give my statement for my suspension. today my employer contacted me stating they were terminating me due to the allegation being founded for abuse from witness statements and for having prior write ups for attendance. i asked how could it be founded on witness statements if the people that were present in the home were not in line of site. i stated to the employer that i felt this termination was premediated because of the letter i received last week and that i would be contacting the EEOC and a lawyer. they contacted me back about 20 minutes later stating that they were no longer going to terminate me, instead they were going to give me another write up like it was recommended from the investigation findings. I have not contacted them back yet due to feeling as if i am going to now be walking on egg shells because i feel like they are going to look for any and every reason to terminate me

as well during the conversation today when i stated that i felt the termination was premeditated because of the letter, my employer stated that it wasn't that the letter was generated when they switch over to their new pay portal. they switched to the new pay portal back in march. my employer then stated that the letter was generated due to my leave of absence that i took. my last leave was back in nov. 2014. i have not taken one since then. the letter is dated nov 3rd 2017

What do you WANT to do? Do you want to go back - or do you want to quit. You may want to go back and start looking for another job; it's always easier to find a job when you already have one but I get how it's a terrible situation to be in. Frankly, if you're going to go back, I would demand that they NOT give you any written warning under the circumstances.

my concern as well is I'm in nursing school and the abuse goes on my record. this can potentially put my career at a halt for a false abuse finding. it was a he said/she said situation that has no evidence to it. i love my job but i don't want to feel like i am on edge with this job. i have already been diagnosed with anxiety because of many situations i was put threw over my 7 year employment with them.

Okay, then it sounds like you've made the decision that is right for you... not going back... but you may want to consider the EEOC anyway....

You just want to make sure that you draft a resignation letter - so it's clear YOU resigned and weren't fired.
