Why do you believe the employer was seeking a reason to terminate you?

Because the coworker and I never got along. I believe the coworker may have threatened a $300,000 law sutie. This was unintentially said to me from my previous manager.If they could prove I was not following the P & P's, then they would have a valid (lawful) reason to terminate me.There was a new policy put in effect 5/18, which stated no fragrance policy. I started using essecial oils for health benefits and the coworker claimed she was allergic to them and this is why the policy was put in effect. I at once no longer used my oils before or during woork days. Only after I left work. However, I did fail to leave a bottle of cleaner at my desk and the manager terminated me, stating he knew I was using them.

Do you believe you were terminated because of your gender, disability, age, sexual orientation or age?
