I was recently fired but work in Oregon state that is at will employment. Upon my termination, which was done electronically through texts, the employer states that they have my hours from the current pay period already processed and the final paycheck is ready. He then states that on May 3 2024, my remaining sick pay (like PTO, but not exactly) and an additional 2 weeks severance will be sent to me. I provided my current mailing address and commented on the frugality of this situation and my termination in general. The employer then responded saying I was ungrateful and that he wasn't going to pay me. Being that the text messages have him agreeing payment on a given date because he didn't like my response isn't he still obligated for the payment because it's a contract? There's definitely more to this and could easily contain multiple questions needing answered...for example, discrimination harassment abuse and toxic work environment. #termination #discrimination #protectedclass #advice

Dana first of all how can you say I clearly do not know what I'm talking about. If you go back and read what I wrote I was not referring to her pay. If you read the last part of her statement she mentioned that there were other things involved for example discrimination harassment and a toxic environment. This is what I was referring to not her pay. Unless things have changed I know when you are discriminated against you contact the equal employment opportunity office. I was not referring to her concerns regarding her pay.

Dana exactly what are you talking about. The person did mention something about discrimination on the job. I was not referring to her pay I know you don't contact EEOC concerning pay. But you do contact EEOC for job discrimination. I know because I've lived it.

You would actually be filing a claim/complaint through your state labor board. Not the EEOC like someone else said. The EEOC doesn’t have anything to do with not being paid

Open to work and not ready to retire. Career professional.

If you are owed wages for time you worked then yes, he has to pay you. No matter how the work relationship ended, if you are owed money for time you worked, you are to be paid.

If you feel that some discrimination is involved please do not hesitate to file a EEOC complaint. If a person feel discriminated against I don't understand why we do not hold people accountable for their actions. If you anything like me I definitely can detect racism.

I understand your concern, I was a HR Director for two different companies and yes I agree, check with the State Labor Board. Where you have proof via text messages about the payout they can’t decline this.

Contact the Labor Board and have them look into your case.
