In the state of Nevada (Las Vegas), During September 2014, while three (3) years employed as a model employee, I was terminated by my former employer for "Misconduct". I was told by my Manager that my action(s) were captured on Video Surveillance. I was denied an opportunity to view this footage or given a copy upon my numerous requests. I was accused of not following company protocols during a "cash refund" transaction for a customer. I was very adamant that I did not perform the required two (2) part transaction alone. In fact, it was a different employee whom at the time was off duty and not on the clock, who used my personal "computer access pin/password" (without my permission or knowledge at the time) to begin & complete part one of that transaction in question. This person was never questioned about this incident at all. When I was told that the incident was captured video, I immediately requested to see that footage so that I may explain in detail the events that occurred, i was denied. To date, I have not seen any footage or believe that there is any video footage at all. Here are my questions:
1. In Nevada, can an employer withhold video surveillance (no audio) from an employee as it relates or adversely impacts their reason(s) of termination
2. During my employment & prior to this incident, there was no company policy about video surveillance of employees. I discovered later that a new policy had been created and circulated company wide addressing this topic. Was this Video taping without my knowledge or consent lawfully permitted by my employer and more importantly, is a lawful tool which my employer could use to intimidate, coarse, or use as an excuse to terminate with?
3. Lastly, without a doubt, I know I was wrongfully interrogated, wrongfully accused, and later wrongfully terminated. Are there Pro Bono attorneys out there that specialize in these types of cases? If so, may I please have their contact info.
