Bedford, TX asked in Admiralty / Maritime, Banking and Tax Law for Texas

Q: If a person is employed by a corporation and that person is then released from said corporation unethical

I was misinformed about my job duties, requirements, and compensation by my direct supervisor. When I attempted to gain clarity I was informed that I was being released due to the fact that I was on parole. This information was delivered verbally from company supervisor in corporation's reception area in front of the occupied desk of the company's receptionist. When I attempted to get a understanding about my entire experience with company I was neglected and bullied

A: You are entitled to a fair and complete explanation. You may contact the state labour board and request a hearing. A local labour law attorney who handles employees' claims may be helpful to you. You should request a full explanation from your former employer IN WRITING. Ask for a complete written explanation IN WRITING signed by a corporate officer or duly authorized employee, authorized to give written explanations for the termination of employees.

A: I'm sorry for your difficult situation. You could repost under Employment Law. There's no guarantee that the question would be picked up again, and if your employment situation was "at will," there might not be a great deal that could be done anyway. But the employment attorneys here would have the most meaningful insight into your situation. You could also try contacting a Texas employment attorney you find here or through your own search and ask if they might be able to offer a quick, free initial consult to give your situation a brief overview. Good luck
