I have an odd situation. I was fired from my job. My HR dept

I have an odd situation. I was fired from my job. My HR dept said it was because of "misuse of funds." This issue I have with this is, that i have been working there for over 4 years, and not once was I spoken to about doing anything "wrong." At the end of each month, I would submit receipts. The receipts were copied on a paper and faxed over to the office. I was reimbursed at the time of submitting my receipts. There was never an issue, a conversation, a warning, a write up, or any disciplinary action taken in the past about this issue. The agency typically follows some sort of disciplinary action with their employees. I was surprised this was not done with me. I had no prior write ups, suspensions, or disciplinary action during my stay with this agency. I feel I was wrongfully terminated. Do I have a case?

I work on commission and all salespeople were forced to sign

I work on commission and all salespeople were forced to sign a new contract that holds us 100% liable for our customers bad debt. We have paid thousands of dollars back to the company when a customers closes it doors or refuses to pay the company. The company says they are not losing one cent. Is this still legal to do since we had to sign the new contract or be out of a job?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MarylandJA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: I tried to get a clear answer before I had to sign, but they said I could only sue for duress of having to sign. I would have been out of a job.JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Not that I know of. We are food vendor. Our accounting department extends the credit. Sales people are said to be 100% responsible for their receivables. A guy just quit because a restaurant shut its doors and they are now deducting $5000 out of his commissioned paycheck.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I had an indecent at work today, my supervisor was present a

HelloI had an indecent at work today, my supervisor was present a co-worker was present, and a patient was present.I work at a brand new rehab facility there is many parts to this property. The owner instructed me and my supervisor to work on a kennel project. The Ceo for the company that runs the k9 project had been procrastinating about getting the kennels finished. The dogs were not in a very good situation.The CEO wanted to talk more about what we were going to do, I told him that I knew what we were doing and I did not need anymore input from him, because the owners had already told us to take care of it. This made him very angry long story short, he threatened bodily injury on me after through his cup on the ground. He did this three times and even threatened to snap my neck. He was US Marine and has seen battle. I asked one of the owners who was overseeing HR if we could have a private conversation with me and my supervisor she said that we would discuss it in an open meeting. I told her that I did not want to do that, so in the open meeting she went around me and asked him. It did not turn out pretty. So then we ended the meeting and I sat down with the owners and their head therapist . My supervisor suggested to let the situation calm down and let me go home. Now the rumor is they are going to send me home next week on call with out pay, and possible termination. What do I do? The CEO of the company also lives on the facility and still conducted business with clients.

I have a situation where I was given a written counseling

Hey… I have a situation where I was given a written counseling because of a complaint. My supervisor stated that he did an investigation on the matter. He didn't ask me about the complaint. When I found out the complaint, it was when he was issuing me a written counseling. Then three weeks after that, he terminated my employment. I want to know if he could write me up for a complaint without hearing my side of the story.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: I am a member of US Legal Resources and they gave me a lawyer however he wasn't an employment lawyerJA: Is there anything else the Employment Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Yes… My Vice President came down to terminate an employee based on a complaint that was given to him. I asked my VP should we consult with the employee before we terminate him. He stated no because he had received the complaint from the Director of Nursing based on a CNA letter that she wrote. The complaint was that a CNA was sitting in my employee's lap in the break room. The story was made up so that the CNA could get terminated.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.
