A HR manager who doesn’t know what to do in the case of wrongful termination... hmmm...
Suck it up tough girl. Think KARMA.
No moral compass, no empathy. Unfortunately that is just how it is with people attracted to these positions. No use trying to change it.
The research showed that 82% were psychopaths.
You should pursue it. Definitely. Not just because what was done to you was wrong, and uncharitable, but because unless people stand up to this , the irresponsible employers get away with it. You should also see an employment specialist lawyer.
As HR you may know your rights, but that doesn't guarantee that you will be treated fairly.
Do you have an employment contract ? Was there anything in it about termination conditions ?
A decent payout and looking for another job might be the best option if the organisation is this incompetent.
People go through all the right channels, get absolutely nowhere for months or years, and suddenly when what they have done is made public, they make a payout, or refund, or cancel outrageous and unconscionable bills. Like magic !
When I say consider, I mean look at the pros and cons of doing so.
A bully manager in the industry I was in bullied staff out of their roles, but they were advised that even though they had a very good case, they needed to consider the impact that standing up for their rights would have on their future employability in the industry.
The managers are on enormous salaries, often with no qualifications. In many, of the dollars collected, only a small proportion get to the clients.
Many have just become money making machines.
Probably not a good industry to work in anyway, except for a select few.
To PP that’s interesting, it would make sense as they seem to go through management like a revolving door, they had 4 different CEO in 1 year and now I can see why, they obviously have something wrong in the background...it’s all so upsetting as this charity was close to my heart and I was really excited about being able to finally give back to the community through knowledge and experience...
I’m guessing it’s in the probation period so they can get rid of you. But technically, if they’ve told you it’s a restructuring then you could go for losses but it will probably be a long drawn out process and you won’t get much severance pay, or you might get a $20 K settlement to get rid of you quietly is my guess. I’m sorry this happened to you. Threaten a current affairs show and see if they offer you a payout
It is absolutely devastating and demoralising the worst thing I have ever been through.
I took me about 2 months to find an entry level job again and about another 4-6 months to be promoted.
Wow I wrote a huge post about why you should choose woolies but everyone was all like yay work for BMW or what fu****g ever so I didn't press send.. sorry this happened to you.
Can you get back into either of those other jobs you were offered, or have they been filled now?
Ya should have chose woolies!
I do know my rights, it’s more of a place to rant and see if ethically I should press on for more information or just get opinions on if this has happened to anyone...
ps, it wasn’t Volvo or woolies that did this to me, it was actually a not for profit (charity) organisation which I chose as I wanted to give back to the community...I ended up being screwed over in the process
