I am 61 years old and have 21 years of service with a large IT services company, and am presently on a contract located at one of their clients' sites. That contract comes to an end in August of next year (11 months from now) and I have decided to retire at that time. I have not notified my employer of that fact yet because they have in the past severed groups of employees and advised them that if they wish to continue working at their current positions, they must sign on with "X" temporary agency which usually involves a reduction in salary, vacation time, benefits, etc. My concern is that if I notify my employer of my intention to retire, that they might decide to 'sever' me and use my impending retirement as an excuse to limit any severance package, reasoning that I would have left their employ by the end of August 2020 anyhow. Would they be able to do that? How much notice am I obliged to give my employer of my decision to retire (considering that they will likely want to bid on the RFP for the next contract using me as the intended resource)?
Is refusing a different type job withing the company grounds for dismissal? I have been with a computer service company for 41 years... working on the road servicing different customers and supervising the team for the last 25 years or so at teh same time. There have been cuts in more admin jobs within the company and I am asked to take a job that is far different from what I have been doing all my like. No overtime, no KMs paid for work on the road...etc..No extra money to compensate for my loss. I have a vehicle that is still not paid off that was bought for the job..no raises for most of teh last 20 years... I am already down to about 50% in today's dollars versus what I made 25 years ago. What happens if I say no ... best case is they let me go and pay severance which has been very good I heard... worse case is being let go with cause because I refuse the change.
I recently got diagnosed with Graves’ disease and found out my fiancée is cheating on me... it ended up causing a lot of stress and anxiety on my body to the point my chest is hurting... I called in because I was throwing up and couldn’t control my emotions. That being said where I’m a supervisor they said that I would have to deal with the consequences if I don’t go in, where last week I called in because we put our family dog down.
I was a retail store manager of two company locations. I was let go as I voiced my opinion to the owner. About pulling some non heard of "company policy". The company is a franchise all owned by one person. He lied to me stripping me of control of my authority to make( as in my managerial duties) my store staff schedules. He then gave me two wks notice of my services no longer being required after the 2 wks working notice. No severance at all was offered. I stayed one week of the two. What rights do I have and what can I do. I am the single income earner in my home, I supoort my husband and my son. Please help desperate.
