Default I am in big trouble this time...........

Well,as most of you know. I'm a mechanic for a living.Last week i managed to get in a fight at work with what i'd call a "42 yr old drunk cry baby".I was under a verbal attack and all i did was defend myself verbally.Well i should have known i was in trouble at this point , because the guy is drinkin' buddies with the service manager...........minutes later "your fired".
Let see , I'm 36 years old.I've never been fired.Got 2 little girls,a wife.My father has cancer and goes under the knife tommorow.No one is hiring at this time of the year.........
Just a rant,thanks for listening.

Sorry to here about that. Hope something comes up for you soon, especially with the 2 little ones. I take it you can't file a appeal or grievance on this matter? Anyway good luck to ya, I'm sure it will work out, just another bump in the road of life. Go file for unemployment ASAP.

Yeah, and if they turn you down for unemployment then APPEAL. You were just defending yourself. By firing you and not the other guy the Service Manager is setting the company up for a BIG FAT lawsuit!!!

Just in case you are wondering how I know this, I am a Human Resources Manager.

Hey, flippin,

That is definitely sooo wrong. If he was intox when he came in to argue with you, i woulda called the police, he would have been picked up for PI. You need to talk to the guy that is supervisor over your service manager. I would fight it for sure. Good luck.

Unfortunatly I think Virginia is a right to work state with no specific guidlines for dismisal or termination of employment.
Basicly they can give any reason or number of reasons as to why you were fired,they don't even have to have anything to do with the incident.
If there were witnesses to the incident make sure you name them and secure a statement from them in your appeal.
I assume this isn't a union shop?

Right to work state, you still have rights. Fl is one also. Being unjustly fired is still grounds for investigation either by a labor board or fair labor practice. Hope things work out for ya.

Guy's,Thanks for your support.Herb,you are correct . Virginia is a "right to hire / right to fire" state.Plus my ex-biker mentality did'nt help.The conflict was only verbal,but I had offered my unprofesional veiws on his work habits and brown nosing.............I'd like to say that it's not over,but i have learned that it is easier to just walk away...........and this is one of them.
Thanks again,ya'll been great.


flippin4it



P.S. I find it strange that you guy's know more about me getting fired than my freinds . Must be that southern pride again. I'll work on that.

Yeah it sounds like you would be better off moving on.
Just keep your chin up and remeber you were looking for a job when you found that one.

* * * * Well lizards,the surgery went good and bad.The good news first,he pulled through ok.The bad news,the doctor was unable to remove the tumor due to the fact that it is wrapped up in his spine and vertebrae.They took samples and sent them to the lab to see if it is cancer,he just got done with prostate cancer treatments in december and the doctors suspect the cancer just picked up and moved........I'll let you all know........

That's GREAT news. Hope he's well on his way to recovering. Theres always baby steps forward, and a few back steps, but at least he's home with his family.
