Ive been through this so maybe I can help.
If you dont have one ask the representative of the company if they have a copy of the Employee handbook available. If they do ask them to run down the process for termination of an employee. If they didnt follow it to the letter you will win.
Specifically ask for copies of any warnings given whether they were verbal or in writing. Ask for dates, who issued the warnings, why they were issued, and how they documented it. If the warnings were written ask for certified copies submitted under penalty of perjury.
If they dont have one ask the hearing officer to delay the proceeding until they produce one for you to review. If the company rep balks ask the hearing officer to issue a subpoena for it. They have that power.
Trust me, theyll fold like a cheap lawn chair.
Man, thanks. This company will not fold. Pretty hard core bunch. I worked for his brother at another place for five years. We go along fine. However, after 20 months at this new place, office politics got going and this brother wouldn’t put a stop to it. Hostile work environment. God will take care of us.... thanks.
