Are there any employers willing to give a guy a chance after the hearing has been won?
I was fired from my job for alledgedly threating to kill my supervisor. I had been taking harressment (not sexual) from this guy for going on two years. I was once threatend with physical violents but the company didn't do anything about it. The day they fired me followed two events. On monday I turned in a doctors note stating I could only work 40 hours a week for the next three weeks(we had been averaging 24 hours ot a week), On tuesday I went to the plant manager and made a harressment camplaint. Wenesday was my last day. I won my case for my umemployment and have the judges decision in writing. Now a year later,(I took a very long vaction)I can't seen to get past the first interview once the topic comes to my last job. It doesn't matter that I was able to prove I got screwed. I see it in the interviewers body movements and facial expressions. Are there any employers around Salem, Ore. that will give a guy a chance? I'm in the warehouse and inventory control. By the way, the company that fired me pulled up roots and left town about six months later. I've stopped telling possible employers the truth. Now I'm just like all the other people that lost thier jobs when the company pulled out.

Also come to the job interview with your court documents and be open about it. Explain what happened, if a boss can't see it... More
