I normally do refuel outage's at given nuclear power plants.I left an outage at millstone nuclear power plant on may 13 due to an ROFI took a job at a local valve shop In CT East coast valve services on 5/16 2016I had an agreement with ***** ***** the shops manager that I would work for him until end of June and see if I was a match for what he was looking for.I left on 6/27 due to many reasons the first and most important one is that the owner of the company and the manager allowed its employees to smoke marijuana and drink liquor in the company trucks and hotel rooms. I had a suspicion of this but did not see it with my own eyes until the week of June 13 th. I asked three times to talk to the manager he never made the time. I left because I could not and will not jeopardize my unescorted access at a nuclear facility. I filed for short term unemployment and was denied. I am trying to get the transcript from a hearing on 08/01/2016 CT unemployment keeps saying call back. I am at a loss.

If your HR representative said they saw you during your

If your HR representative said they saw you during your lunch having a beer and was close enough to identify it but did not approach or say anything to you and allowed you to go back to work then fired you later that day since they didn't comply with the law ( OSHA law ) can you file wrongful termination? And if so on the grounds of what? Also should you report them?

I had an employer who fired me because I didn't like the new

I had an employer who fired me because I didn't like the new schedule. He forced out everyone who complained. For three weeks he insisted I didn't want the job and quit.For three weeks I tried to explain that I did not quit.He did not respond. One day I saw his wife and asked her to talk to him. She said she would and "things have gotten bad here". A couple of days later he approached me and said I had threatened his wife, they would be filing a report and that "you could lose your children for this".I actually approached his wife for help in regaining employment. Naturally I would not use threats to get my job back. I said I would apologize for any misunderstanding. He told me to only talk to him. Several days later,I found this out when I went to pick up my daughter for our visitation:My ex employer contacted my ex wife ( who he has no relationship with and who I am in a custody battle over my daughter with) and told her his story and provided her with a police report. He also told her I was fired for drinking.My ex took this to the courts and was awarded emergency custody. She said she had a police report of the incident with my employer's wife. A FALSE POLICE REPORT.My ex employer has a history of deceit and is well known in the community for burning his employees.This has caused me damage to my court battle, caused my community to question me and to spread the false accusation.Unfortunately, I have no witness to my conversation with the wife of my ex employer.She won't talk to me or accept my apology.I am being slandered by Joe Nazar . He has lied to the police, the marina where I live, and my ex wife.Where do I go from here?

I was recently terminated from my job. During the

I was recently terminated from my job. During the "investigation" I was held in a small office and not allowed to go to the restroom, get a drink of water, have a smoke or anything. I was told I could not leave the office. I was held there for approximately 3 1/2 hours during this. Wouldn't this violate my civil rights? Isn't it considered false imprisonment?

I recently accepted a job in Michigan. I live in. I was set

I recently accepted a job in Michigan. I live in Virginia. I was set to start at the end of the month. I have already made all the arrangements to include finding tenets for my house. I flew up to Michigan for in processing. Part of the in processing is a background check, drug test, psychological evaluation, and a breathalyzer. I was not informed of the breathalyzer. And last I checked drinking is not a crime. I am not an employee yet, I don't work there yet, I'm not being paid. I go out the night before drinking. I failed the breathalyzer. So now they can't hire me. Also, I can now no longer work at any nuclear power plant for a year. I'm getting out of the navy in 2 weeks. So in addition to having a very short time to find a job, I can't even get one in my field. Drinking isn't illegal, I've down nothing wrong, and I'm being screwed. I want to sue. Do I have a case?
