I believe I was falsely fired from my job. They called it gross

Resolved Question:

I believe I was falsely fired from my job. They called it gross misconduct. I was never warned of this misconduct, or given any kind of suspension or anything. I was fired a week after the supposed incident happened do you think I have a case to sue for my job back or what can I do?? I was awarded unemployment.

Thanks for your question. You may well have a claim here for wrongful termination. If you were singled out for disparate treatment--that is they treated you differently here than others consider filing with EEOC/DOL as well.

This might help your claim here if they find in your favor.Your lawyer could cite the complaint here in the demand letter for money. Try the demand letter---this is pretty cheap and you can see if they offer your job back/money , etc. I wish you good luck here..

Cheap legitimate lawyer referal through your state bar..

How does your phone service work?

Call(NNN) NNN-NNNNor toll free(NNN) NNN-NNNN the referral clerk will need only basic information (your name, address, brief description of legal need) and will then refer you to a lawyer in the geographic area requested. (All information provided will be treated as strictly confidential.)

You will contact the referred lawyer’s office to make an appointment at a time that is convenient for you. The lawyer will not contact you. Be sure you tell the lawyer you were referred by the IllinoisLawyerFinder phone service so you will receive the special rate for the first half-hour.

After the initial consultation, you are under no obligation to proceed with the referred lawyer if additional service is needed. It is up to you to authorize the lawyer to proceed on your behalf.

How much does the lawyer charge?

Again, the lawyer has agreed to provide a half-hour consultation for a fee not to exceed $25. It is up to you to contact the lawyer for an appointment. Be sure you tell the lawyer that you were referred by the IllinoisLawyerFinder phone service so you will receive the half-hour consultation as described above. You are not obligated to hire the lawyer, and the lawyer is not obligated to represent you. If you decide to make another appointment with the lawyer or authorize the lawyer to take action to assist you with your legal problem, be sure to discuss the fee for further services."
