On Feburary 22 I was terminated as an employee of UPS for allegedly "falsifying" company documents. Specifically I was accused of lying on my MVDC while applying for a position as a full-time driver. The MVDC asks if you've been CONVICTED of any traffic offenses in the past 12 months. I received a ticket for driving with a suspended license in August 2006. Currently, my case is pending due to a deferred prosecution. The prosecutor says I did not plead guilty, therefore could not be convicted of anything. I even have a letter from them stating as much. UPS position is that I had to plead guilty to get a deferred prosecution despite the fact that the court says otherwise. As a matter of disclosure, I did reveal to UPS that my license was suspended and what it was suspended for (failure to pay a speeding ticket). The incident from August 06 does NOT even come up on my state motor vehicle abstract. I do not feel I was dishonest because I have not been convicted of anything. Only in August 2007 after a full year will my record reflect the incident in August 2006 and in that case it will only show a ticket for No Valid Operators License which is not criminal. What makes this even worse than it otherwise would be is that I met with Loss Prevention, my center manager, and the center HR lead who ALL agreed I'd done nothing wrong and was in no way, shape or form trying to be dishonest or mislead UPS. Two days later, I was informed by my center manager that despite them all agreeing with me that the Labor manager, a person I'd never talked to and had never offered to talk to me, decided that I needed to be fired. The union is fighting this for me but since this is the only time i've ever needed them, what do you think my chances are of getting my job back? I actually have the documentation from the court and prosecutor showing that UPS position is incorrect or at least their assumption that I had to plead guilty is incorrect. Does UPS have the right to keep me away from working even though they obviously can't prove beyond a reasonable doubt that I was dishonest. I'm of the opinion they can't prove I was dishonest at all because I wasn't. What do you think?
