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 rope.
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 had a similar experience now I'm packing my thing to leave my house and wandering wear I'm going to end up

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...

I fell down set of stairs at home.....2 days after starting a new job. I called to let the manager know, and left message with answering service. Next day called and talked to the head person, I would be going to urgent care. I could not put weight on my left foot. Brought all paperwork to manager, her reply was We can't hold your job. She was visually angry with me. WTF??? I did not throw myself down the stairs! I am 55 and do not understand why... see more

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

I started working as an Office Assistant at a construction company in Phx AZ. I was not trained and was told I was replacing a family member there. So she said it wasn’t easy to train me while she was still there and it was a small office. They seemed like very nice people. I just received an upsetting text message (which she was aware I had to tend to getting my daughter to class and back) So I tossed my phone in my purse and went outside for... see more

They can not fire you thru text messages it has to be in person. I would also go after them for unemployment also.

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 just cause for termination and... see more
