In California I was dismissed by a large non profit agency for poor performance. I never received a poor review or a warning in person or via email. I only received a very positive email by a manager I didn't report to.
I signed a paper saying I agreed to the charges when I left but really didn't understand what I was signing as I was very nervous and confused.
I received no severance and hr hasn't responned to questions of how I go about picking up my COBRA. Thanks.
