  • Suspended, broguht back then demoted with less pay!


    Someone please help me. I was suspended for 3 weeks because someone accused me of harrassment and during the investigation by HR/Legal they couldnt find proof that I did...

    So they brought me back WITHOUT PAY!!

    I was told by both HR and my District Mgr that it was paid off WITH PAY, but told me I would have to use vacation time to be paid for it...

    I was brought back to the company but they said they had to move me to another city over an hour away and also demote me even though they told me I was not liable for the harrassment charge.

    No documentation has EVER been done on me and I am a A+ employee in all areas. They didnt even write me up!!! Can i file some kind of lawsuit?

    Where are you getting that the suspension has to be with pay? Is that from a contract? A handbook? It's not from the law.
    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.

      Most companies will fire you for harrasment, exspecially sexual harrasment claims, proven or otherwise, consider yourself lucky you were not let go. Sorry this happened!

          Pretty much. The employer may suspend, demote or transfer an employee for any reason not protected by law. Being accused of sexual harassment does not put you in a protected class so while unfair, this was legal.
          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.
