Yes, I would like to follow up on these alleged accusations and clear my status. Should i seek legal representation? Will they be able to refused unemployment if they decise to terminate me?
Employment Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 8 years ago
Legally, I am afraid the employer can do so provided it is not out of discrimination due to race, age, gender, nationality or religion. The employer can do so within its discretion for no reason at all.
You can ask for reconsideration though and can look to an employee manual if available in case procedure for review is not being followed.
