I need some feedback

New CEO of the company terminated all the high paying employees just to save the company money. 5 years I only called out twice (1 grandma funeral and the other grandpop funeral) never late and worked 60 to 70hrs a week every week. His excuse for me was I took an extended break when they was the one's who asked me to work thru my break to help them catch up! So when I got done ill take my break. No it wasn't my scheduled break time but it was after my break time. I am entitle to my breaks and lunch. No warning no write up no nothing. Just termination. Is this even legal?

I'm soorry to hear what happen to you this new CEO is a head hunter and his job is to get rid of those Employees at your company that are receiving high salaries. And whomever ask you to work through your normal break and lunch time should have stated that he ask you to work pastl lunch and break time. This remind me of the time when I used to work for the Sheraton Corporation When a new GM takes over all the current Department Heads are loooking for new position else where

Jeffrey - It's not illegal for them to terminate you. However, if the company has a procedure where they must provide warnings, coaching, history of non-performance you may have want to check with HR. The company may be bound to follow their own procedures. Most companies want to avoid unjust termination law suits so they must document their actions leading to the termination. Good luck.

It would depend on the contract you signed when you were hired. Many companie have hiring booklets and regulations that explain what they expect from their employment

How awful! They just wanted to get rid of you all. Praying you can find other employment. Seems like you really loved your job, but nowadays there is no allegiance toward great employees. Wonder what would have happen if you were not punctual. You will be alright.

Something is wrong. I would seek help from the Labor Board.

New CEO I suggest you go to the Labor Board immediately. You will be very happily meeted by a Labor commissioner that will make everything clear for you. You might have a case if they didn't mark down your vacation days on your paycheck.

Yes and no. They can terminate you . However you can bring them to court A few attorneys specialize in this I suggest YouTube to find your attorneys The consultant should be free These attorneys are extremely smart and will think of ways to prove your case in ways most employers have never thought of
