Firstly, I would really appreciate any help that anyone can give me.
I have resigned from the company that I work with and have given my notice. I will soon leave said company, however, my employer is trying to fire me whilst I am in the process of leaving.
I have worked for the company for over a year - and I recalled the managers doing something extremely similar to one of my co-workers. Essentially, they fired her giving her 3 strikes which they had brought them all on her at once. From what she had told me, the mistakes she had made were innocent, i.e. given customer wrong tender/not scanned an item etc. Lots of the coworkers had agreed that they were harsh but, since they were mistakes and they had the jurisdiction, nonetheless they fired her.
Now this links to my situation since my managers have treated me very badly. And I have observed them doing the same thing now to me as they did to her. Now the situations pertaining to myself were that I had also given the customer the wrong tender.
I was originally on good terms with my manager, but it is clear that he is trying to fire me, as they are doing exactly what they had done to my colleague/friend.
In my situation, the number 2 manager alerted me that they intend to contact HR over a situation that had occurred 2 months ago. I have seizures and panic attacks that occur infrequently. I am an introverted person and I have high anxiety and so only a few people know about this - and I had not alerted these managers.
Now the other situation being that I had incorrectly returned an item - the number 2 disputes that I should not have done this. I argue that this could not be attributed to myself and that I would have followed the manager's advice and never claimed responsibility in doing so.
The third situation is that when I have a seizure/p.a I took an "unscheduled break". I do not want other staff/customers etc. to see me when I go through one of these episodes. And so I would either leave the store, or go into a closet so that I could not been in this situation.
Now the manager that had noticed that I was missing on the day of my seizure/p.a., told me that I shouldn't be leaving "unscheduled". Reluctantly I told her what had happened and she said just don't go again and also that she wouldn't tell the head manager about this. She assumed that I just take extra breaks. However on one day in the past, this manager took an unscheduled break. I noted the day that this had happened and myself and another colleague saw her do this. Additionally, there are cameras where the colleague was and so there should not be any doubt that she was in the wrong in this case. I do not know whether I should report this. However, since she reported me for this "unscheduled break" today that I took after I had given my notice - I am unsure what this would look like if I report her for this. The other manager (not the head one) told me that they would report this to HR despite this happening over a month ago.
Now my employer is trying to fire me via my other managers. As I have said I have already provided my resignation but the other managers that I work with on the remaining shifts that I am scheduled to work are extremely rude to me.
Additionally, I have evidence of a phone call that I made to the head manager of when I fell ill and he had said that she does not believe me verbatim. I provided him with a doctor's note and he just left it as it was.
The other managers today were forcing me to sign documents to acknowledge these "mistakes". However, I declined and said that I would discuss this with the head manager. I was warned prior to this by other colleagues to not sign anything that I did not agree with and so did not. If I had signed this, they would contact HR immediately to take this further. However, I declined to sign anything.
From when I provided my notice, my manager changed my staff review to the worst possible, as in from A to D where A is best. I was originally given a C by one of the other managers - to which the head manager reassigned me with a D.
I do not have the strength nor confidence to go back to this company to work my remaining shifts. I am strongly considering getting a doctor's note in hopes that I do not have to work these shifts as I am suffering severe anxiety from all of this. This is detrimental to my health and I feel sick and uneasy going to that workplace.
I have a few remaining shifts, although I am sure that the manager will fire me owing to these "mistakes/errors".
I know this was long to read but I would be so appreciative to anyone if they could help me.
I never want to go there back again if anyone can advise me what to do, I would be extremely grateful. I am strongly considering just not to turn up to the remaining shifts, although this would look very bad on my part. And although this company would never give me a good reference in future, I do not want to be fired, especially since I have previously resigned.
Should I go see a doctor? Should I email HR myself? Should I just not turn up to the remaining shifts?
If you are absent via sickness then you are typically told to call in, and I have evidence i.e. a recorded conversation of the head manager saying that he doesn't believe me.
Clarification: Following constructive responses from everyone who has posted in this thread I will not return to that hell. I will seek medical help with the issues that I am going through in aim to get myself excused from working the remaining period. Many thanks again to everyone who has responded/helped I sincerely appreciate the time and effort you have all made in helping me x
