I was fired because I called a co-worker b*tch and this violated the respect in the workplace policy- never mind that said co-worker had been harassing me for six months and violated federal law! I made my supervisors aware of this, and still had to work with the co-worker; until I had reached the end of my
On top of that the employer appealed my unemployment claim and won, and at my age no-one wants to hire me. What can I do?
I recently asked six different recruiters and hiring managers to tell me what the biggest mistake applicants make during the interview process is. If they repeated a mistake given by the preceding recruiter/hiring manager, I asked them to give me a different mistake.
Here are the six mistakes that could end an interview, or lead an applicant to not get a second interview/job offer...

20 months ago I was fired from my employer of 5 years for
falsifying records I took a different lunch break than usual and accidentally posted the normal time I usually take my lunch break, still took the same amount of time 1 hour but my manger reported me to HR and a week later I was informed that I was being terminated for falsifying records. I think this is about as petty as it gets and it's obvious this manger didn't like me. I have not be... see more
Hi John. I have a couple of questions. First, can a manager give my position AND my hours to another employee without telling me? Second. Can a DM shave our hours and make us work at an unreasonable pace so he can get a bigger bonus? Is that even legal? I was recently terminated when the DM accused me of working off the clock when I wasn't. He even told me to not worry about it when I explain that I was picking up my broken down boxes. He called... see more
Im seeking the answer to this question for a relative. I say no way! Anybody else who knows if this is acceptable??

About a year ago, I was a Human Resources Manager for a large corporation called Lowe’s Home Improvement. I was very good in my position. I always went above and beyond of what my position called for, and many times split my time between 2 or 3 stores to ensure their employees had access to an HRM. Mind you, this was a salaried position. I was very meticulous and diligent with everything I was involved with and all the files were pristinely... see more
If you’ve recently been let go from a job it can make you feel angry, confused, and unsure of what to do next. You may have seen the term
at-will thrown around and you aren't even quite sure what that is. Let’s take a look!
• What does “at-will” mean? If you work for a company and you are considered an “at-will” employee, this means you can be dismissed by an employer for any reason without having to establish
