After 20 years of working at this place ( where I work ) I am contemplating starting my own business. Three years ago they told me I no longer needed to be on call. It is a nightmare. Two weeks ago they just put me back on call with no discussion. They also stopped doing a major part of what I did for the company. My goal is to get laid off and start my own company and draw unemployment.( yea I know that this isn't right in some peoples eyes but they owe me something) What if they fire me for refusing to be on call? Can I still draw unemployment?
PS.. After 20 years all I got for 20 years of service was the same thing someone with 1 year of service gets.( Generic card signed by no one and $20 gift certificate to a restaurant we don't like )
The CHRISTMAS party cost the company $20 per employee.
TALK ABOUT CHEEP-- And to think I used to get a christmas bonus that equalled a weeks pay.
