Convergys — wrongful dismissal
My husband and I both went to work for Convergys on October 26, 2009. We started our training and 2 weeks into the training both of our kids got sick with the flu (that had been picked up from the filth of the Convergys building). I missed approximately 20 hours due to taking care of them, and I was asked to resign or be fired. So I resigned. My husband continued working at the company only because there are no jobs to be found in our region. He was promised promotions to floor walker and even one time promised to be put on Resolution Desk. His TL would always make up some excuse why he couldn't be promoted for one reason or another. On June 30, 2010 our daughter became sick and spent 13 days in the hospital which was 60 miles away from our home. He told his TL about what was going on and she told him that everything would be ok with his job, just to take care of our daughter. So on July 7, 2010 he received a call from his TL stating to him that he needed to resign because his points were too high to continue working there. So over the phone, he resigned and his TL told him that there wouldn't be any problem with him getting unemployment since it was an issue with family. So low and behold on August 3, 2010, he received a letter stating that his unemployment had been denied because the company said he quit without good cause! HELLO!!! His TL TOLD him to resign!! And he had VERY GOOD CAUSE, our daughter was in the hospital and had been there for 8 days prior to the phone call. He was never allowed to speak to the HR dept, because she was either on vacation or she was "busy"! Convergys SUCKS!! And I'd NEVER recommend anyone work for them, unless you want to work for scoundrels and liars!!
