I would like to know if anyone else has issues with their employers. My employer is getting ready to terminate me. I have worked there for over 13 years and have had to use the Family Medical Leave Act since the birth of my son. They have always given me some type of grief over having to take off time to take care of my son.
Last week I asked to use the FMLA to take time off for my own health issues. Today I received a hand delivered letter from my department’s Director advising me to attend a Pre-Termination hearing on Wednesday.
Now I have never had any issues or write ups for over 13 years, until my direct supervisor retired and now I have a much younger supervisor. He has told me in my position; I should not take time off from work. My position was too important. The day I returned to work after taking FMLA, he issues me two written warnings.
Now I have been, according to this letter, accused of,
Incompetence or inability to perform the duties required
Misconduct in office
Conduct discrediting the County
Poor performance of my work
Not having the technical skills to perform my job duties.
They listed no details on any of these, they informed me this is what the “Pre-Termination” hearing is to discuss, and however in their letter I am expected to defend myself. How can I defend myself if I don’t know the details?
What would you do? Have anyone of you faced these types of issues?
