Ask the Lawyer received the following question (paraphrased for easier reading and clarity) from a reader on a legal matter that might be of interest to the entire audience.
How can I find out if a union exists at my agent? My supervisor is changing my critical elements in my performance appraisal plan so that I will fail.
Check with your HR office to see if you are in a bargaining unit represented by a union. And remember, management ultimately has the final discretion about the content of a critical element.
