Hi, I was fired yesterday after working there for 4.5 yrs. New manager came on board 10 months ago. Was great until she started creating new policies and procedures like the large bank she came from. We are a very small credit union, about 25 employees. Of course very short staffed and expected to do more and more. Very stressful. I've been given 3 written warnings for mistakes I've made in the last 6 months. Yesterday, they gave me a 4th written warning for not even a policy violation. Said I was a risk to the bank. I also don't have a copy of our Cedit Unions policy manual. We don't even have an HR dept. I feel like they did not follow whatever protocol is in place. And pushed me out the door without personal belongings or dual control to count my cash drawer. Its a mess!
JA: Was this retaliation? Or based on age, race, religion, gender, or disability?
Customer: I was in some gambling trouble last October and they noticed with my NSF's in my checking account. I've since straightened up my act, but at that time said I was a risk to the bank. I've done nothing wrong, at least willfully. I just turned 63, but they know I am not retiring anytime soon. I was out with 2 surgeries on short term disability. They kept hounding me when I would be back so I went back early January still hurting pretty bad. Made some check deposit mistakes and other transactions that were humanerror and fixable. In hindsight IMHO
JA: What kind of workplace is this (private sector, public sector, etc.)? How many employees?
Customer: I Should have stayed out longer. The day I returned, they fired 2 veterans of 20+ years, so again so short staffed. Very stressful. It is State NCUA small 25 or so employee credit union.
JA: Where are you located? Workplace termination laws vary by state.
Customer: Delaware County, Pennsylvania
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I'm just trying to get info on unemployment, etc. Thank you.
