California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I think my grievance was traded for another employee and proper channels weren't taken and they fired me and not him. I've been there 18 yrs with a clean record and I didn't even get proper representation.
He lied about seeing an accident that didn't happen and I found out today from a supervisor that he said he never saw any accident. He went along with another supervisor that doesn't like me to save his job because it was in jeopardy.
Even if the supervisor lied and falsified documentation to get me fired? This is a complicated case but I assure you that a lot of underhanded things were done from my union representatives to the supervisor. My record has been spotless for 18 years. I do have proof of everything that happened but my union allowed them to fire me anyways. I just wanted some help from an attorney in my state of Ohio.
Unfortunately, there really aren't pro bono attorneys who take on wrongful termination cases like these. (Pro bono attorneys are normally lawyers from big firms that represent management, so they cannot take on cases representing employees). You may be able to find one who'll take your case on commission, but you have to go through the NLRB first.
Will this information go to my email address so I have something to reference to incase I forget or do I just come back here? Do you have any links that would be helpful for me?
Thanks and I appreciate you for your time and information. You have a great weekend as well. I will be sure to rate.
