Thank you for your question.

Please describe what happened.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
During work hours I was located inside of the plant and later I herd that a jar of marijuana was found under my car. Can I be held responsible for it even if I was absouletly no where near my car and my vehicle was locked?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
knowing it's not mine if I'm fired do I have a case?
Expert:  N Cal Attorney replied 9 months ago.

Yes you would have a case for wrongful termination. You can ask that the jar be dusted for fingerprints.

It sounds like someone tried to frame you but did not do a very sophisticated job of it.
