They have to treat everyone the same under their existing company policies. You would need to show specifically how they violated their company policies with you (seems this was done if your friend was not treated the same as you for the same kind of problems and the employer was aware). Based on the information provided, there is no basis of discrimination
as you do not present grounds that you were treated differently because of your age, gender, religion, disability, sex) which is required for an EEOC
violation. All you have appears to be a breach of their company practices. Whether you have a case would depend on the specific violations the employer did with you versus others and that your termination
was specifically because of this violation and no other reasons unrelated to this.
