My day as a care provider started out rotten. By noon I felt a rare migraine coming on. Lets just say for me it's very hard to play in the sandbox when the other kids are just so obnoxious and out of hand, screaming and yelling at the same time I'm trying to build several castles at once for safe haven! I went home, supervisor approved 4 hours early..... #advice #wordsofadvice #jobsearch #management

Confront the issue directly. Ask for what you think you deserve and keep in mind your manager may be grooming you for a promotion by asking you to take on additional responsibility. Ask!

I worked at a company for over 20 yrs under numerous managers; promoted to supervision 6 yrs ago. I was called into a meeting with my manger as if it were a regular staff meeting (with others), and accused of witholding information from an agency that never contacted me for information regarding another employee's investigation at a business adjacent to our location. After that didn't make sense, I was accused of paying for services that were not completed, when in fact it was completed and paid for by another, having nothing to do with me, and the manager was well aware of this, with proof. Previous to all of these accusations, I was told by manger to start sending work to one of their friends, and admonished me from completing the work that I'm licensed to complete after work hours, and have been so for over 30 yrs. When I questioned the decision of my manager, everything went downhill from there...accused of paying for services that I did not pay for, accused of completing work after hours when my supervisor told me it was unlawful for me to complete the work in my current position, which I presented documentation to the manager of that being untrue. After me questioning the manager and providing proof, all the issues began. Keep in mind, I only handled work after hours on occasion when my selected person was unavailable, or short turnaround time...which wasn't often.

In meeting manager called me in with others, and stated I'm suspended until further investigation, with pay, of (me not cooperating with another employees investigation, paying for services that record show was not true, and completing work after hours against mangers wishes). Two days later I received a letter of termination, stating I completed work during my off-work hours against the admonishment of the Manager, from the Manager) Redacting the fact that they originally said it was unlawful! Manager did not release my benefits: i.e., sick, vacation, personal, last pay checks. Also noticed the manager constantly making issues after the manager saw me talking with someone they did not like.

Someone informed me that it's possible the manager wanted to get rid of me to hire a friend, which they ended up doing so; and that I didn't have the degrees that the manager felt I should have in order to have the position that I held for six years without any write-up or issue, until the day of the meeting.

I guess my question is, is there anything I can do about it?

One option is to reach out to the EEOC and file a complaint. Make sure you have all of your "ducks in a row" as the company will provide a response to your complaint that will paint a not so rosy picture. Still worth a try. As an HR person, dealing with the EEOC from a company prospective can be really troublesome.

Anytime anyone tells you to pm someone directly, it’s a scam. Unless you know these people personally please don’t pm, or send any personal information through email.

I was trying to search for jobs in my area, but work from home jobs. I am specifically looking to apply for jobs as a customer service rep? As I have a lot of experience in retail specifically, not interested in sales, just looking to grow my customer service skills. Is there a way to just search from work from home jobs in my area? #workfromhome #advice
