  • The Residential Director refers to me in a condescending tone as a "part-time weekend" employee. He doesn't mention that even though I was classified "part-time weekend", I was averaging about 60 hours a week over the entire time that I was employed. (He averaged under 40).
  • The Human Resources Director suggests I lack the knowledge for the job. He doesn't mention that I have a B.A., which is more college than any other Detox employee, including both supervisors. My degree is in Psychology, which is relevant to the job. None of my bosses in Detox or Residential had any education to qualify them to work in a rehab. Their only "experience" was in their current management jobs, which they got through religious affiliation, not qualification .
  • The Residential Director says he was "forced" to discipline me because of 2 client complaints. One of the two is client "Zack". The other was Zack's friend. Zack used his knowledge of sexual improprieties by certain staff to manipulate those same staff members. Audio here.
