I was terminated after 5 years of employment. The reason was "they are going a different direction". Three days after my departure my job is posted, with "bilingual preferred" is that considered wrongful?
I was offered a lateral position at one of the company's other facilities. Before moving to that position I was terminated without cause and offered 3 weeks pays severance. I have been with the company in a Supervisor role for 2 years. I am 47 years old.
I feel that I was discriminated against and embarrassed in front of my wife and others by the planned seating arrangement at our company Christmas party. My table consisted of my wife and I, three single ladies, two empty chairs and one no-show. I believe we were all leftovers that should have been integrated into the 7 tables. One of the ladies said a few days later that our table was not right and she felt like we were at the kids table. PS We have corporate and branch located in one building. I know for a fact, there is a huge morale problem and it had nothing to do with me. I was told by many that I was the best worker. Even warehouse manager said I was best employee in 15 years. But there is a battle between the Corp and branch and I got stuck in the middle! 2/3 Of branch did not go because of hatred for corporation so I got the brunt end of a dispute I was not involved in.
If I'm working at company 'A' and are merging with company 'B' can the newly merged company 'B' fire me if I don't sign a non compete stating I can no longer work on my own side business outside of office hours even if I am using my own equipment and software at home? Even though I never had to sign a non compete at my original job, company 'A'?
