Uniformed Servicemember Discrimination
I worked as a sales associate while my managers were aware that I was a reserve U.S. Air Force Officer. My orders to go active duty came sooner than expected so I told my manager, Laura Lawler, out of courtesy. I told her I wanted to give her two weeks notice, so she handed me an HR form to fill out and turn in when I was ready to offically give the details of when my last day would be. To make a long story short, my job was terminated that day by Laura and Delores in Human Resources, without my knowledge. When I finally discovered discrepencis with my schedule and Macy's card, I called HR and spoke with Delores. She was rude and unprofessional to me. She told me that Laura asked her to terminate my job effective immediately because I was going active duty. That was on the same day that Laura handed me the two week notice form. On the phone, Delores did not offer to fix the problem until I demanded it, and she couldn't guarantee the same job and hours as before. When I expressed my dread for working at a place where I would be treated poorly as such, she said goodbye and hung up. This matter is a legal issue because I am protected by law as a U.S. uniformed service member from work place discrimination for my military status.
