Thank you for using JustAnswer.com!
Can you please clarify how is it that you believe you were defamed?
The facts that you describe suggest that you were an at-will employee. This means that you could quit at any time or your employer could fire you at any time and for any reason (even a wrong reason).
The facts that you describe, while unfortunate, are not defamation. What it really boils down to is that you served at the pleasure of your employer and they decided that your services were no longer necessary.
They could have fired you because you wore blue shoes to work. Even if you didn't wear blue shoes to work, they could still say that and terminate you.
I know it may seem to be unfair. But that's the way at-will employment works.
they said i had a 50/50 chance of getting unemployment but they will fight for me not too.
do i have a chance to get unemployment if they deny me and i appeal, i did not steal i put monies in a coffee can what are my chances
