Q. Can i legally be terminated from my job for being called out to fight wildfires during this conflagration here in oregon
A: You may have protections:
Q. Hi, I had to quit my job due to my boss yelling at me then physically trying to attack me.
A: Denial of your unemployment is up to the state, and given the facts above you should or should have appealed any denial. As to the payout, they may or may not be required to pay you out on your vacation time. However, if you file a complaint with BOLI over the unsafe workplace, your former employer may offer to pay you out those wages to settle that claim.
Q. My manager sent me a "Performance Improvement Plan" letter demanding a signed response by EOD. Must I respond?
A: They cannot force you to sign, but refusing to sign can be insubordination, which could get you fired for cause and potentially make you ineligible for unemployment.
