Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

It sounds like you were treated very unfairly and disrespectfully. However, it is not illegal for an employer to be unfair or disrespectful, and none of the facts you have described would suggest that you have any legal claims against your employer. All you can do is attempt to persuade them to re-hire you. But candidly, this sounds like a job you are best served moving on from. I am sure you will be able to find other employment where you are more valued and treated with the respect you deserve.

I hope that you find this information helpful and am genuinely sorry if it is not what you were hoping to hear. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
