Customer Question

Hello. I was hired at the end of March at a assisted living and started April the 4, 2016. They did a background check on me and everything. Today May 26, 2016, I revceived a phone call stating I was fired because a employee told them I was on probation for assault....which I am but they fired me. Can they do that?

Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you. Did the probation show on the background check? Did they say that is why they fired you? Had they asked in the hiring process if you had been convicted or plead guilty to any crimes?
