I was suspended pending an investigation. So I had my interview with the investigator at the beginning of January. He told me that HR would call me with the decision within 4 weeks. Now its been 8 weeks and they still haven't called me back. I'm still on the schedule if that means anything. I called the store manager and he told me they haven't told him anything. Can they just fire you without ever telling you? What should I do?

Displaced Legal Professional in Denver, Colorado said: Welllll........maybe you should start looking for another job. Also apply for unemployment benefits.

Displaced: He or she didn't say why he or she was suspended. We don't know the whole story. He or she could file for unemployment, but then they would have to investigate it and find out why he got susspended.

I don't know about the unemployment laws there in Virginia. But here in Pennsylvania, you cannot collect unemployment if you were fired for willful misconduct, if you're self-employed, if you quit your job without a necessary and compelling reason, if you refuse to accept a offer of suitable, you're not available to work, or refuse to apply for suitable work. If they deny you benefits, then you can file an appeal.

I also believe that Pennsylvania is an at-will state too.

What were you suspended for? I would think if they planned to fire you they would have told you by now. Are you still being paid a salary by the company? If not, you better file for Unemployment Benefits. I would show up at the company and demand an explanation as to what is going on. This way you know what your next move is.

I was thinking about getting the District Manager Involved. Do you guys think he/she can do anything for me? If so how do I get in contact?

Hi. I worked for care company and was suspended without pay on 26th April 17. Was told by manager she had no choice but to reported to cqc, i would be suspended for no longer than 2 weeks, i will receive a letter and it would be cqc decission if i kept my job, not hers.it's been 4 weeks with no letter nor contact. I was asked to go the office in 26th May 17, no investigation by cqc so guess they never intended, was asked if I'd like to resign or be sacked?, i said I will need to think about it. Feel so upset & angry although I didn't show any emotions, they have left me hanging for 4 weeks no pay no investigation why? My contact doesn't mention anything about being suspended with or without pay, it does mention line manager, but no name or number, company doesnt have a line manager. They have been recruiting new staff in the last 4 weeks. Any advice ? Many thanks
