If I was fired for breaking company policy and another employee did the same thing I did and wasn't fired, is that wrongful termination? It's a large company based out of North Carolina.

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Any time there are policies, they must be applied equally across the board to all employees. An employer cannot "cherry pick" who they will apply to thus risk a wrongful termination lawsuit based on the discriminatory practice of only applying the policy when and to whom they want to.

The answer to your question is Yes. It appears to be a basis for a lawsuit
