I am writing this because I feel I was terminated for unfair reasons. i have been a Camping World employee for 25 years in various positions including service installer(5.5 yrs), shop supervisor and service manager for about(15yrs), and a product specialist for approx. 5 yrs. During that time I've relocated 6 times and was a traveling service mgr. for about 4 months. I have always been a good employee, with excellent progress reviews. I lead by example and my product, service, and membership sales have consistently been either at the highest or near the highest in every store i have worked. My last store in Coburg was no different. My attendance was near perfect. I was late for work one time, but was early almost every day as well as stayed late if needed. I was out of work on medical for about 11 months for complication from open heart surgery. In a coma for 4mos, and cardio and motor/muscle in patient rehab for 4 mos. 3 more months outpatient rehab. All this to learn how to walk, talk and use my left hand again(from a stroke suffered during surgery). The Drs. said I would never work again, but I proved them wrong, only to be fired after 10 months. Brian Morgan wrote me up 3 times for 3 different reasons, none of which I repeated. I just don't understand the reason I was fired, nor do I agree with it. If someone would look at my record I believe it backs me up on this. also to terminate an employee that has devoted so much time to a company and not even offer a severance package or extended health care benefits is just not right. I would like someone to look into this. I feel like i was discarded like a piece of garbage. I loved my job and my customers loved me. I got a long with almost everyone. I think they got rid of me because of my salary and my medical problems. Speaking of salary, they refused to pay me the commissions I collected on about 8 prepays I did, saying they don't pay till they close out. Since they fired me before they closed them out, i heard Brian Morgan paid them to the other product specialists. If he could pay my commissions to them, why not me? I admit I did have to miss some work here and there for medical appointments, but I always came to work after and made up the hours on other days. I would be willing to go threw arbitration, or just be happy to get my job back. Thank you for your time and consideration.
