i have worked for this department of human services, grant, and donation-funded private agency that supports individauls with disabilities. i was awarded a the position of a program manager in 11/01 for approx. $30,600 annually salary. i have been approached by admininistration that everyone will eventually have to take two programs, doubling the my responsibilities for meager $4000 increase. if i do not take the additional program, they have stated i will be terminated. other managers at my level have been strong-armed like this and have taken the extra position, but the quality of their work has diminished by the amount of hours they have to spend and not spend in one program. countless unethical tactics have occurred to myself and others over the last three years i have been there. the major problem is it is a private "at will" employer and nobody has a contract. i am in the procees of filing a grievence through the board president, but that will take time. until now, most people have taken it or literally, walked out. i am a fighter and just want to be treated fairly. do i have any recourse, or not?
