Well, I lost my job Monday. The way that I lost my job is a bit interesting. Hopefully some of you know United States law or more specifically North Carolina laws. If so let me know what your opinion on the matter is. So here is what happened... I take calls during and after hours because I provide (well, I did) tech support for 500 customers, on my own. I do this 7 days a week, and sometimes 5 days a week. From 9am-11pm. I normally work at the office from 1pm-7pm. Sunday a man named Charles Brown calls my home number and my dad picks up the phone. He walks into my room and asks me if I know a Charles Brown and I said no. Obviously I can't remember the name of one customer when I deal with 500 by myself. So my dad walks out of my room since he already knew it was a customer of mine and tells the guy to not call my house because it is a private number and he shouldnt be calling here and to call the office. (At the time the owner was taking calls last weekend so it was his problem not mine to do tech support). The next day on Monday I went to work and the owner calls and tells me to come to his office next door. He owns a medical practice. I then get chewed out because my dad "apparently" cussed this customer out and told him to go to Road Runner. I get a lecture about how these customers and the owner pays my bills and if they leave and go to Road Runner my bills dont get paid. So I tell the owner that it is my dads phone and that I never gave this customer permission to call me at home and it is NOT my business or his what my dad tells anyone whether its his customer or not. The guy deserved what he got for calling me at home. I'm not sure yet how he got my number but I plan to find out. The owner told me if it happened again I would be fired. His look at the situation was he gets calls at home from patients and I should too, but it's my dad's house and his phone line and a private residence. I am just an employee of the company, but somehow I should be "professional" and take these calls. I went back to work at my office as normal. At 6pm my dad calls. The owner was in my office at the time so she tells him that my dad wants to talk to him and that he wants to know how Charles Brown got my number. Well, I walked in the room half way through the conversation and figured the owner was cussing out some customer so I didnt think much about it then the receptionist told me it was my dad on the phone. After about a minute I walked back in my office cause I didn't want to hear it. After he gets off the phone he comes in my office and tells me to give me his keys and leave so I did and walked out without a word since I knew if I said anything or stayed any longer I would deck the owner. That day, on Monday the owner had some problems at his practice, our phone lines had been down on and off for two days at our office because Bellsouth's problems (happens a lot). Also an employee that had been gone for 2 months came back on MONDAY which made it all the easier for the owner to take out his problems on me and fire me. The facts: 1. Charles Brown lied and said my dad cussed him out and told him to go to Road Runner. I have two witnesses that were in the same room as my dad and he said no such thing, and didnt so much as raise his voice to the customer. 2. I have been fired for unjustifiable cause. 3. I also have witnesses who were in the room when my dad called the owner. It turns out that as SOON as the owner picked up the phone he started being very loud and abonoxious and using foul language with my dad which is why he got cussed out by my dad. So, you tell me. Fair? Unlawful? I have contacted a lawyer and made an appointment. Also I am filing a complaint with the labor board for unjustifiable termination of employment. As far as Mr. Charles Brown I am meeting with the magistrate at the court house and filing charges against him for harassment (he called my house six times and lied to the owner which in turn partially got me fired from my job). If I am not compensated for my terminated job status I will be making sure that the owner gets audited for unlicensed software, mainly Windows servers. Also for his financial actions with customers. There are thousands of write-offs and voids in the system on customers accounts that and he can't explain more than five of them. He also has given white liquor to people that are underage and to cops as a payoff. These are his exact words. Also he has made threats to me in the past numerous times about how he would kill me if I did certain things. These are just some of the things I will gladly use against him That's all I have for now on the situation. Note: Will be calling the SPA and the IRS. For those of who that dont know who the SPA is, they are a piracy agency. IRS is obviously the Internal Revenue Service.
