I had worked at a retail store. I was terminated without cause. Since then the manager changed to someone else I had worked with and upper management has stayed the same. I am now working for a marketing company. Part of my job is to go into various retail stores. I was assigned to go into the one I had been fired from.
While I was there, my manager called me and told me I had to leave. I asked the manager working at the store (who is part of their own company) if there was a problem. He said I was banned from the store. I asked why. He replied that he was on the clock so he couldn't discuss it but if I didn't leave he would charge me with tresspassing.
The manager at the marketing company said she may have to cancel my future shifts which sounds to me like getting fired. These other shifts have no involvement with the store. The manager is new and this is really unfortunate that this is the first time I've worked with her. Since the job is part time I legally don't get as much protection.
My question is, should I ask the manager if she wants or preemptivley send her any of the following as evidence:
- I have a record that I was terminated without cause and received severance (in fact the store paid me below the legal limit of the severance I was entitled to).
- Positive references from the other people working at the store
- Receipts from other times I had been in the store since being fired to prove that I was allowed in.
Should I tell her that the manager threatened to charge me with trespassing hours after I had started working?
As an aside, I feel like all of this is very immature. I would like just not to participate but I see no other option than act defensively.
