I worked for Centennial Bank for 1.5yrs and recently umpqua bank bought out centennial. I was laid off once and then rehired by my old boss to a new branch. iwas told the branch would be closing but not for another year at least. 4 mos later i was told the branch was closeing in May. anyway, 3 weeks before i was fired i had a meeting with my manager in regards to some sick days that i took off. they had carried over from centennial bank 2002 to umpqua bank 2003, i wasn't aware of this. the day before i was fored i took a vacation day, the next day i called my boss she was alittle upset because it wasn't an approved vacation day. i explained that because our branch was closing none of us had filled out the vacation schedule as it is used only to cover vac. time overlapping between employees. she said she understood my situation and told me of a job opening in another dept. she told me to mark it as a vacation day and i told her i wouldn't use any more in the month before the branch was closing she said okay also i had inquired into whether or not the merger had affected my severance time (1.5months) she knew i wasn't going to stay after the branch closure she said i would get it. she said she'd see me the next day. she showed up a half an hour later and said i was terminated for absences she then switched the vacation day to a sick day and i left. i feel somehow i was cheated, am i right?
