I am a agency worker at a company where my job description is order picker I was told today (feb.27.2020 to shovel snow I refused and got let go Am I in the wrong for refusing to shovel snow?
I have been working for the same company for the last 4.5 years, I was just notified that i will be terminated on March 31st with not reasonable cause. I inquired about having a severance and they told me that they do not pay severance since they are giving 6 weeks notice and the contract that I signed when I first started working said that if I am given notice they don't have to pay severance. So I have to keep working for the next 4 weeks just to have some sort of "money/severance"
I had been employed as a software developer at my previous company for almost 2.5 years. I have had good/great reviews on the project teams I was apart of. I was put on a challenging project, where I wasn't prepared enough so my velocity suffered. I had my shortcomings and was given a written notice in late summer. I rectified it immediately and didn't hear of anything for half a year. With no notice, I was to be put on a pip early Feb for no cause, but then before it was drafted, I got fired. Do I have a case?
I am a server at a restaurant. I have worked there for 4 years. I have never had a written or verbal reprimand for any of my actions. I recently attended a staff meeting with my GM over a change to the tip out procedure. The entire front of house staff felt that the change was unwarranted and unfair. After trying to explain our perspective and negotiate a more fair arrangement (I suggested a different increase then the one he was proposing) He presented us as a staff, an ultimatum of his way or resign, stating that female servers are easy to replace. His motivation for the increased tip out is to give more money to his back of house all male staff from the gratuities that his female staff earns in the front of house. At the point of the ultimatum, I orally stated "if the tip out was going to change his way, he could expect my resignation". At this point I had to leave the meeting due to a family commitment. I had spoken to my GM prior to this meeting letting him know I would only be staying until 10:40 am and he ok'd it. After leaving the meeting the other staff partook in more conversation and the end result was to accept the change that I proposed. My employer has terminated me 3 days later through a text message stating my oral statement of my potential resignation was reason enough to take me off of payroll. Is this correct?
