Absent some other, valid reason, it seems you suffered retaliation

Hi Judith:

Please send me a confidential email at and describe the following:

The name of the nursing home;

The specific report of neglect that you made;

Whether you put that report and writing and, if so, to whom did you give it;

Your position at the time of your termination;

The number of years you had worked there;

The evaluation results for each year that the nursing home evaluated you;

The reason they gave you for your termination;

Whether they have fought unemployment and, if so, the grounds and the status of unemployment; and

Any other valid reason other than your report of abuse and neglect.

Absent a valid reason for your termination, your report of neglect may have triggered your termination.
