What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Louisiana
Ok, I'm new here I've actually come before and read up on some others cases just trying to seek help for my own. But, I decided to join and post my request for some advice on an issue that happened to me at the end of 2009 that I continue to fight with my job about.
Nov. 10, 2009 I was walked out of my job by security after having a meeting with security prior to that, 10/19/09, and a meeting that day with my top supervisor. In this meeting he told me I was being placed on non-pay/duty status pending an investigation. I was told it was going to be quick and only last maybe a week or two at max a month. Two weeks went by and I had a vacation planned and paid for in December so I took it. Well while out of town my job tried to send a certified letter to my house and my brother was able to go pick it up for me on the last try before it was sent back. Postal service around here sucks but that's a different story. So he calls me while I'm still out of town and reads me the letter it's work wanting some kinda statement admitting to what I did again which if I didn't do it in the first place how can I admit to something. Well I call and they give me some time because at first I was only given 3 days to respond. So then after my response I get nothing and begin to call to only get voice mail. Then I get another letter from working claiming that in my previous email I admitted to 5 different subjects but nothing is in the letter about the original reason all this happened.
So we go back and forward until Feb. comes around I then email my work explaining to them that I will contact and attorney to handle the case if I do not hear anything back. Two weeks later I get a letter of termination no warning no contact nothing. I then appeal the letter, on the following week I get called into our office and have a meeting with a new manager. He tells me that he could not find a reason I was terminated and allows me to return to work.
About another month goes by before I'm allowed to return to work. Upon returning no one has an idea why I am there as they were not informed of my return. This was a Tuesday on that Friday of that same week I was told to report to the other office again this time only to receive a reprimand. I refuse to agree to the charges in the reprimand and request all of my info.
I finally after fighting back and forward with them since last year sat down a rechecked all the documents submitted through all this to find.
-A submitted typed statement has been filed as my own that I never typed, worte, or was recorded. Nor, is my signature anywhere to be seen
-The amounts and values claimed early on documents are not the same as later.
-My email responses have been taken and changed to statements and me admitting guilt when the email never said anything remotely like what they wrote.
-Dates don't match up on their end.
-All of the charges that have changed from the original date have all been reworded.
I have a stack of paper work that has been submitted as official that if anyone sat down and read this would think someone could not read.
I'm wanting to know legally what steps I should think about taking against my job about these. I honestly am tired of the environment and the hostile work environment that has been created.
I know this may be hard to follow but, any help would be great.
