  • Can I get fired for not providing university transcripts California

    Hello,
    I have been working in a private company for two years and a half now. A new administrator started working with us in September, and after reviewing my file, decided that I did not have the sufficient qualifications, and cut my yearly salary by $5000. He is now demanding my transcripts, and has made insinuations and threats. I have no problem providing them, but I am wondering if he has the right to fire me if I decide to not provide them?
    Thanks in advance,
    El.

    I'm not sure what kind of insinuations & threats he has made - I assume re possibly firing you. In at-will employment you can be terminated (fired) at any time for any reason except a reason prohibited by law (ie religion, race, gender....) or unless you have a binding employment contract to the contrary.

    If you have the transcripts, I would provide them as requested.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      He has the right to fire you for any reason not specifically excluded by law, or no reason at all, and there's no law that prohibits an employer requesting transcripts.

      That said, I would provide the transcripts, but start looking for another job anyway. It sounds like, for whatever reason, this administrator does not want you working for him, and I doubt providing the transcripts will change that.

        Sure he can fire you. No law prevents being fired for not complying with an education verification.
        I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
