I feel that I was fired for the wrong reason, not waking my boss in the morning or I misunderstood his orders that morning due I have a depression attack
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

This appears to be a classic breach of contract if they promised to reimburse you, but never did and instead terminated you. A breach of contract just simply means that one party was obligated to perform and they have either have not performed or have said that they will not perform. Typically, the aggrieved party is entitled to be returned to the same position they were in before the breach, including the reimbursement of your funds. There’s a site that I’ve used in the past where you can find a good template for advising of a breach of contract. It's a bit easier (and cheaper) than going through litigation and I have seen it be effective in the past. If this doesn’t work, sadly, the only other option is to either go through an informal mediation or file a lawsuit in your local court. This website is also pretty cool because you can download the forms right after purchasing. Click here to get started.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?

He was so angry that his VP was also suprise like me
Customer reply replied 3 months ago

Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Perhaps. It depends on the nature of your employment agreement. Did your employment agreement specify any specific reasons why you could be terminated?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Or mutual
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I apologize, but I think I may need some more details on this situation. So, you were owed reimbursement, you've been contacting your employer about this, but they haven't responded to you.

In addition, they terminated you because you used a credit card without first obtaining permission.

You're wondering what your rights are with the reimbursement and what your rights are with the termination, correct?

Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Ok, thank you for clarifying.

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The VP said I was terminated for others reasons that wasn’t communicated to me directly . My boss or owner keep insulting me saying what’s wrong with my mind that he knows that I have depression
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Sorry My English is not spot on
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

So, if they owed you money, and they have no legal basis to keep it, then that's a breach of contract. If you scroll up, you'll see what i put about that in more detail.

As far as the termination, you may not have much recourse, unfortunately. NY is an at-will employment state meaning that they can terminate you for any reason, or no reason at all, so long as it is not based on your being in some protected class like your race, disability, gender, or sexual orientation, for example.

Thus, you may not have much recourse there; however, your $5,000 can be returned and a court would likely find in your favor.

Also he likes me I think and he occasionally show a gay website
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I see. If you have reason to believe they terminated you because of your depression, then this to me sounds like you would have a case of employment discrimination which is prohibited under state and federal law under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission field office in your area will serve as the agency that would oversee the complaint, should you decide to file one. There are some basic processes that the EEOC files that I think you should be aware of, and I have listed them below:

The initial pre-complaint process can be found at 29 C.F.R. §1614.105. This is the process whereby you may bring this action to an Equal Employment Opportunity Counselor within 45 days. The Counselors must advise
individuals in writing of their rights and responsibilities, including the right to request a hearing after an investigation by the agency. The process may go through informal mediation wherein the employer and the employee try to come to a reasonable agreement. It’s voluntary and I highly recommend it in most cases.

Regardless, the EEO Counselor will issue a report based on their initial findings. Once the employee receives notice of the findings, they have 15 days to file a formal complaint.

The formal complaint process can be found at 29 C.F.R. §1614.106-108. Basically, the EEO will conduct a full investigation and come up with a Report of Investigation. The employee has the right to request an administrative hearing with an administrative judge after receiving the ROI or they may sue in a federal district court. Mediation is always still on the table. If the parties cannot mediate, then the parties will go through the administrative process or a federal civil proceedings and then the judge will issue a “Final Agency Decision” (for administrative hearings) or a ruling (for civil actions) If the employee doesn’t like the decision, then they can always appeal. A quick Google search will reveal your local EEO office so check that out.

What other questions did you have for me regarding this?

i have been trying to contact my boss but he doesn't want to asnwer the phone how to address the reason the day when iwas fired if there any . links
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

My apologies. The 45 days is for federal employees. You have 300 days to file the complaint from the date of the allegedly discriminatory action.

Even if your boss doesn't answer the phone, he'll have to answer to the EEOC if they are investigating a concern on the matter.

You would start by contacting your local Equal Employment Opportunity Office. Having reports from your doctor may come in handy as it may go to help prove your case.

can you please help me up how to make case true and strong as possible
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I wish I could, but unfortunately, because I'm not licensed in your state, I can't represent you.

One of the hardest things to do sometimes is find a lawyer that you can trust. Google searches are a good place to start, but usually the lawyers who pay the most can get bumped up to be on the first page regardless of their quality. One thing I recommend is going through your state’s lawyer referral service (LRS). The LRS in each state typically requires the attorney to have several years of practice, be free of discipline, and have adequate staffing to assist people. Here is the link for the New York State LRS - click here.

what are my strong casess on my depression because i already told the VP i had depression and my boss/owner he knows also but he knows that i am seeking professional medical help
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Oh, I wish I could help you with the specifics, but without seeing any documentation, without interviewing any witnesses, without understanding the extent of your mental health, and without the ability to represent you, I couldn't tell you much more than what I have. I'm very sorry.

My recommendation would be to create a timeline of events and do your best to try to connect their discrimination to your termination. You may not be able to prove with 100% conclusive evidence, but that's not required of you anyway.

Did you have any other questions about this for me?

I would always recommend handling things informally first. So, go to HR first and explain to them what you need. This will prevent unnecessary litigation.

what is your advice how to deal with EEO as far as step by steps
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

My best advice is to follow the advice of the EEOC. They're experts in this process and will provide you all of the necessary resources. My best recommendation would be to just have your documentation in order in advance so it's easier for them to conduct an investigation.

what else
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Unfortunately, I won't be able to walk you through all of the possible things that could help you prove your case. I don't have nearly enough information to prepare something like that and it would be much easier and more wise to have someone who is representing you do such a thing. Plus, because our conversations are not confidential, your employer could potentially Google this conversation and use it against you. Speaking with an NY licensed attorney, in private, and providing them documentation is going to be critical at this juncture.

with my full name
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

It won't appear with your name . Your personal information is protected by the site. What I mean is that because our conversations are not protected by the attorney-client privilege, your employer, or someone your employer knows, could end up running across this conversation. It's highly improbable, but it probably wouldn't take them very long to connect it to you, even though they could never find out for sure. All I'm saying is have the specific conversation of how you plan on doing this with a private attorney behind closed doors.

Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

The EEOC won't give you a lawyer; however, if you check your lawyer referral service, you can find an employment and labor attorney who may be able to assist you with this. The EEOC will conduct an investigation to determine whether your case has any merit, but whether you hire representation or pursue it further is up to you.

Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I understand. I think that you have a good case based on what you told me. Also, many labor and employment attorneys work on contingency. This means that they will usually only get paid if they are successful in your case.

I'm very sorry about your situation, but I think if you take the steps I recommended, then you can get some justice.

I have an EEOC hearing coming up. I was terminated from USCIS two years ago. The Agency lawyer was one of the designated management officials during my first EEO mediation. I learned later in reviewing the ROI that she served on the "management roundtable" and recommended that I be fired (which happened one year later). Later that spring I requested another mediation and the same agency lawyer was one of the designated management officials. Then when I was actually terminated, she represented the agency during my MSPB appeal. My question is, was it a conflict of interest to serve on the "roundtable" recommending my termination and then serve as a designated management official hearing my EEO complaint a few months later?
