HelloMy name is Samuel and I look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard
First, you have to know that in Illinois a person can be fired for anything that is not based on discrimination.It is a shame that your daughter was forced to write and sign something that she absolutely denies. However, she is an adult at age 18 and so unfortunately, a court may not see it as being under type of duress - even though it was stressful for her.But if she is being falsely accussed of a crime, I suggest that you can consult with a local attorney for a possible defamation of character lawsuit. And the attorney would consider taking the matter on a contingency which means their fee would be a percentage of whatever settlement they got from the Dollar Store for your daughter.I am sorry this has happened to her. I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated.
