What makes you think the termination was "wrongful"?
Did you have a union contract or a written contract of employment?
Did you company policies or manuals indicate that employees could only be fired for certain reasons?
What took place?
Was this a government job or was the employer a private employer?
Was one of your duties having to verify the authenticity of bonds?
What assets were misused?
Normally, when an employee works without a contract or employment or a union contract, they are considered an employee-at-will in the U.S. Employers can hire or fire employees-at-will at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all (even if they have been good employees) at all with only a few exceptions. An exception occurs when the termination is for illegal reasons, such as discrimination due to race, religion, age, gender, etc. Another exception (and this depends on state law) is if the employer has indicated somehow to employees that they can only be fired for certain reasons. A final exception, which only a minority of states recognize, is that employees can only be fired if they violate certain work requirements. The view of the different states and employment at will in the different states is discussed here.
