I was recently let go from HealthPort. (a job I loved for almost two years)
I was given a letter of warning on the last day of a sales month (OCTOBER) saying that I needed to hit my quota that month in order to maintain my position. I explained to my manager PATRICK NORD, that this was unfair length of time to be given the notice and he said to bring in the major accounts I was working on in November. (hence not terminating me)
I closed a major deal that I had been working on for the company (Roughly 200% of my quota for the month in November.) Then i closed another huge win (250% for December) I was told to get the paperwork in immediately to show my work so my position was saved.
After turning in the paperwork and asking for vacation time. (asking, not requesting) I was told I was being let go. I asked to further discuss this considering the rapid turn around and I was told that I didn't have enough in my future pipeline to continue my employment after the New Year. (I explained that my numbers were on par with what was required for the pipeline. (90 days worth of opportunities equalling at least 60k, I was at 63k) I was told that I had a 1:1 scheduled to go through my opportunities in order tot transition them.
I asked at that point if I would be receiving the commissions that I was tricked into closing before i was fired. (i was told that HR was looking into that. Shrestha Taylor would be getting back to me) This was the first week of December. To this day I have not heard a word from Shrestha Taylor. I was forced to reach out to her manager and overall head of HR Keith Thomas. Speaking to Keith was like talking to a wall only more inept.
By the time I spoke with Keith I was given word from another employee at HealthPort, that my company had held a meeting in which case they disclosed my sexuality to the rest of the management team. I made an official complaint with HR about Bill Matits who had held the meeting. I still have heard nothing back from that either.
The last I heard, i called to follow up and they are refusing to pay me my commissions saying that i was fired with cause. (To this day I still have nothing in writing explaining what that cause was) I was contacted by HealthPorts Legal department. (Who i would venture to say this specific legal advisor (bc Im not sure she can be a lawyer since she told me that she was not sure if sexual orientation was protected in CA.) MORON apparently she hasn't even heard of google. Otherwise she might have checked it at least once in the week it took them to get back to me, only to say. "Please have your lawyer contact us if you have a problem with this."
In any case, I have been fired before and have known that it was for cause and never fought nor blamed anyone for it. (Its not a proud thing to say, but when you are fired, own what you did.) In this case, I did nothing and they are refusing to pay me for the work that I did in fact do. They have provided no reason for not paying me.
I am sure this will look like a disgruntled employee complaint and If not being paid over 30k in commissions isnt reason enough for someone to be disgruntled, I dont know what is.
