Recent Wrongful Termination questions

Another store employee (in BJs) provoked an incident which

Another store employee (in BJs) provoked an incident which escalated, and then he accused me of running over his foot with the large floor cleaning machine. He reported this accusation to management and I was immediately suspended. The allegation is false, no medical documentation has been provided, and no workers comp requested. However, the other employee's statement has been accepted without any investigation and I am at risk for termination. I hope store cameras with video will exonerate me. I believe the accusing employee is guilty of defamation of character, in front of witnesses and in his written statement. So far, the company has not made any attempt to investigate his accusation to determine the facts of the matter. If I am terminated, would the company be complicit in defamation of character and be guilty of wrongful terminaton?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes. The other employee, "Bill", and I were both asked to write a statement regarding the incident. Immediately after, termination proceedings were initiated, but when I asked about medical documentation of his injury, it was acknowledged that none had been provided.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. I am a diabetic, the company knows this and I've been employed there for 11 years. Never have I ever been accused of behavioral misconduct. The other employee was aggressive, hostile, and provocative. Could this be considered a personal injury case also? P.S. I am the wife of the man in question and I'm writing on his behalf.

I'm 66 years old. My employer terminated me with no notice

I'm 66 years old. My employer terminated me with no notice and without even telling me. I was a commissioned salesman and was helping train a new director of Maintenance 8 hours a week. I was told that was no longer needed but not that they were terminating the commission agreement. This happened some time in March but I had to repeatedly ask why my company email quit and why I was not getting commission statements. Finally I was told I had been terminated and the fedex checks I was receiving were for sales booked prior to my termination date. I have never been verbally warned for any reason nor in writing or given any goals or direction that wasn't met. In fact I was one of the leading sales people by dollar volume. I am told my accounts have been given to a lesser paid person and they are happy with the results. Thank you, Matt.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will. Full time salesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm sure they know but I believe Minnesota requires 30 days written notice for employees over 65.
