On Nov. 18 I asked my supervisor and HR about possible advancement and they said I could not be considered for a promotion because I did not know which day or days I would need to take off to testify in court as a victim/witness.I told them I called the US attorney’s office and asked to get out of testifying in court being it was being used against me and she said that could not be the reason; my testimony would take a day maybe less (I didn’t actually call the US attorney). She said “yea but you don’t know if they will call you in last minute without notice”. I was unsure if that would happen or not, but told her that it would most likely not. On Jan 12 I did just that, and then got fired for appearing intoxicated. see the additional details below.the us attorney asked me why my testimony was used against me, I told her that I had asked them to call her (I didn’t tell her I was terminated because I did not know if they called her, or if they really could use my unknown testimony day/s against me), I told her that they said it was because I did not know when and how many days I would need off. I told her that they need to know a week in advance of when I have to appear in court, she said that I will be told ahead of time . But that never happened; they told me the evening before that I had to testify in the morning. I tried calling the case agent to ask if my former employer called the US attorney’s office, but I got voicemail each time. I did not leave a message. I don’t know what to make out of things. My former employer and the case agent both seem to be ignoring me.
