  • And we thought we had it bad? Federal

    98% of the population is asleep. The other 2% are staring around in complete amazement, abject terror, or both.

    So I guess having (multiple) Dept(s) of Labor to go to is a GOOD thing.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Hold onto this and show it to some of the posters who complain that they were paid a day late.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        Would like your thoughts?

        Greetings PattyMD cbg and AL HR

        My apology if addressing a person by their name/id in a forum is inappropriate.
        My hope is simple to say thanks respectfully for your thoughts.

        May I ask the legal professional community a couple of foundational questions in regard to preludes of declaration of a wrongful termination ?

        I wish to ask my former employor for their consideration in a “whatever” their idea is in a severence/termination/company policy/massive layout/ IRS and ultimately how to bring closure respectfully.

        I will ask them one at a time and stop once it appears that I do not a case or respectful argument.
        1. What is a lawfully respected policy for terminating an employee in a South Eastern “AT WILL” state by a company with >50,000 people held to ground by diversity?

          I'm sorry, but I don't understand the question.

            Patty MD clarify

            Sorry Patty -
            May I re-say IT?
            1. Typically in a large corporation that supports all views of diversities - what is the HR process for terminating an employee for violation of an unwritten company policy.

            Can the manager that terminates an employee - take a Senior employee with nearly 10 years behind a closed door without HR and with no documentation and make up the rules for covering the possible risk of losing their job?

            This may still be not specific enough - please advise me how to clarify my question.

              The problem is that there is a Common Law doctrine of Employment-At-Will effective in all states but I think Montana. The doctrine states that either party in the employment relationship can end the employment relationship without recourse. The doctrine is not absolute. There are federal law exceptions such as Title VII. Most states support some types of exceptions, such as Public Policy, although those states that do support one of these exceptions do not necessarily agree on exactly what the exception means, making these exceptions very state law specific. So far, you have said nothing that indicates that an illegal termination has occurred.

                You may also want to refer to the employee handbook, if any. Sometimes there are guidelines concerning "due process" that may be enforceable.

                  I am so confused.

                  What does this have to do with the poor Indian kid?
                  Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

                  I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

                  Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

                    Not sure, but I'll bet he's moved on since then... He's had a good year to look for better job opportunities.

                    On another note, c72 and daniel are looking like family.
