My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Virginia
Pulled / Terminated For Breach of Contract / Constructive Termination
Was working for a company that was sub-contracting for work in Afghanistan (AFG).
Completed all requirements for deployment and hiring prior to leaving the US, traveling to
Afghanistan (AFG) and then onto the job site in Kabul, AFG.
Prior to my arrival in Kabul I was informed by the incumbent at the job site that there were housing problems at the job site.
Housing would be on another base, located next to where the job site was located at.
Prior to leaving Baghram I related the housing matter to the senior representative (REP) there.
The senior REP stated that the contract required that I was to be housed at the same location as the job site and that anything else was not acceptable.
Upon arriving at Kabul I was again informed of the housing issue and that I would be given a statement of non-availability (SNA) for housing.
I called the senior REP and told them of the housing situation and that I would be given a SNA. The senior REP stated to get this as soon as possible to them.
Two days later I was called by the senior REP and told I was being pulled from the job/contract for breach of contract stating that I was not complying with the contract ie: not being housed at the job site.
I stated to the senior REP that I had told them of this issue at least two weeks prior to my arrival, would have the SNA shortly and asked that they send me a email regarding this.
The senior REP denied any conversation regarding the housing and that I was being pulled from the contract for breach.
Subsequently I resign that day and returned to the USA.
Please contact me ASAP regarding the above.
I have now been unemployed for several months and unable to secure further employment because of this.
