What can be done if your employer did not follow their policy?

Asked by tootough (1points) June 3rd, 2009

I was fired because of undocumented cust complaints. My employer had no proof to their allegations. So where do I go from here? I believe with all my heart the reason she fired me was because she did not like my comment on how she handled another situation. She basically retaliated against me.

Consult a lawyer. You’re going to need to sue, or at least threaten a lawsuit that they think they will lose, to get your job back.

If you are in an “At Will” state he doesn’t need a reason. If you think you have been wronged you should consult your local labor relations board.
Talking back to an employer IS probably a valid reason for dismissal if that’s what happened.

It may have been only ONE customer and the boss won’t tell you because she thinks you will know who it was.

You have a choice. You can spend lots of money and time fighting for compensation, or you can choose to find another job. I would recommend you talk with a lawyer before making this decision, they will help you think it through.

Contact the Labor Relations Board.
I had medical benefits withheld from me by an employer and just mentioning the labor board was enough to get some positive results.

If you do get your job back, it’s not going to be the friendliest situation ever. In fact, it might be downright antagonistic, whether you’re right or not. And my guess is that you’ll be out the door again just as soon as they can find the next shred of evidence against you.

Sure, if it’s not an at-will state and you haven’t signed a binding arbitration agreement, you could sue. But I expect you’ll save money and have a happier life if you just find someplace where you can make a fresh start. Just my $0.02.
