Is this Wrongfull Termination and do I have a case?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread
In August 2002 I was given written directions by my Criminal Attorney to provide the courts with my employment information. The directions stated: On company letter head type out you employer, address, phone#, immediate supervisor, supervisors telephone#, length of employment. I typed all the information on letterhead and submitted it with MY signature. Upon verification of employment from court. My employer stated that I committed "Forgery" and was Terminated for not having my supervisor type the information. There was no need or directions to me that any supervisor, corporate office or general manager has to type the information. Upon termination my employer also denied my unemployment benefits. Do I have a case if so can someone PLEASE HELP ME.. Many Thanks.

A lot depends on how many years an employee was working for the company.

I was recently terminated for the following reasons: 1) I took half a day off at the end of the year. (this day off was approved in advance.) 2) one of my plants sent in a spreadsheet 1 1/2 months late for the end of the year processing- this cossed everyone a big headach. (I processed the spreadsheet as soon as I got it and submitted it to my supervisor who told me that we didn't have time to test it and I should just give it to another senior coordinator to process it.) 3) I talked to someone else in the building about their job and this heart the senior coordinators feelings. (I was never told not to talk with anyone.) 4)miss use of company resources (I was asking if it would be possible to create an email based Q&A for our office, because we currently were working on a paper virsion and when I asked my supervisor she said that it sounded like a plan. Do I have a case??

Teggie, it depends on how the labor laws are applied in your state. Within the past ten years or so, Corporations & business owners sneaked one past employees, they don't need to state a reason for termination! How bout that?
