Harassment through poor performance reviews

I am an engineer in a manufacturing facility. I have had unprovoked and unfair performance reviews (3). What are my rights to get these revoked?

Need more information.

I cannot answer your question without more information.

Normally, in Pennsylvania, you are an employee-at-will; which means that you can be disciplined, hired or fired at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all.

However, there may be a basis to challenge your performance reviews. To know whether such a basis exists, I would need to know answers to the following questions:

1. Do you have an employment contract? If so, what does it state about discipline and performance reviews?

2. Are you being treated differently from other employees? If so, why?

3. Are your performance reviews being given to you in the normal course of business, or are they accelerated or ahead of schedule?

4. Do the performance reviews call into question your character or accuse you of crimes or gross incompetence?

Feel free to reply to these questions on this board or by email to my at CEzold@Ezoldlaw.com
