Getting fired is every employer’s nightmare. In reality, in order to fire an employee, the employer must have a valid reason to do so. Regardless of how you are being treated, your job is never safe.
Here are some signs that you are being pushed from your job, and tips to help you do the right thing.
You are Left out of Meetings
If you notice a weird behavior, such as you being left out of regular meetings that you would normally attend, it is a first sign that something is going on. If this happens more than once, you should speak with your employer (or your superior) and try to find the answer to why this is happening. Address the issue, before it becomes a problem.
Not Included in Future Projects
Besides the meetings, you may not be included in future projects and plans. The best way to prevent this is to spot the changes early on and accept any feedback (positive or negative) in order to apply the changes.
If you discover that you are being talked about in an email thread in which you are not included, something is definitely going on. A Los Angeles employment attorneys advise you to speak with your superiors and ask what is going on, before jumping to conclusions. And if you are in need of legal help or representation, the attorney’s from The Kaufman Law Firm offices are at your disposal.
If you used to go with your colleagues and superiors on lunch breaks, and then suddenly, they stopped calling you, it is a sign that you may be pushed out. Try and find what is going on as quickly as you can, before things turn dire.
If you are new at work, this may be normal simply because “new guys” find it more difficult to integrate into social situations.
If you find yourself in a situation where you enter the office and people around you start whispering and looking at you, do not panic. Most people would start feeling stressed out, thinking that everyone is talking about them behind their back. The smart thing to do is head straight to your superiors, ask them what is going on and try and obtain information about the whispers and potential gossip.
Is Your Boss Taking Notes?
According to the laws of employment, in order to fire you, your employer has to have a good reason to do so. If you spot that your employer is taking notes of your actions and conduct, you should start worrying, especially if you believe that you did something wrong or did not perform your best.
Changes (In the Workplace)
If you start seeing changes in the workplace, or if your company is about to be acquired by another company, or if any of your colleagues get laid off, you should start worrying. Perhaps you are next in line? The important is to remain calm and give it your best to show your employer that you have what it takes to remain employed.
If you get fired or suspect that it is coming soon, contact employment attorneys in Los Angeles and seek their advice and legal help. They will tell you what to do and how to behave and will protect your rights in case they are violated.
