Wrongful termination

Recently the company I worked for terminated me after giving me an oral promise of an additional 60 days after a positive performance appraisal, and then would provide me with another performance appraisal. This created a resonable expectation. 34 days after the original performance appraisal, I was terminated with them saying: we are just moving in a different direction... Nothing that I personally did nor anything to do with work performance.

How would you explain getting fired from one job because of a horrible mistake you made such you'll regret forever? One job because basically a co-worker told the owner I did something for which there was no proof of and I was fired.

Get a PIP, start packing your bags!

I have been a Pharmacist for 34 years. I recently was terminated because they said I failed by performance improvement program. This was a witch hunt by a company to get rid of an older worker. I fulfilled by job requirements and always have. I had a new supervisor who was brought in as a head hunter. She was firing Pharmacist left and right and bringing in younger Pharmacist from her former company. All I can say is laugh now, I will...

Am i crazy for thinking this employer is insane for his reasons on firing me?

So I was terminated in March after only working somewhere for 11 weeks due to "not greeting patients by name and slouching when I write". I worked in a dental office. Most of the patients only come in every 6 months....i had no idea who these people were to know them by name. And I wear contacts, I have to lean down to write in order to see what I'm doing. They told me that they need a "rock star" employee and I wasn't a good fit for their...

Wrongful termination

Long story made very short, I was fired after I was paid and the check bounced. This past Monday I received an employee of the month certificate and when I was fired I was told I was a terrible employee. I had explained to my employer that I had no way to reach my clients because I had no gas or money and until the check cleared, my account was frozen so I needed to have someone cover my shifts until I could have access and they told me that...

Thrown under the bus

After almost 7 years of stellar reviews and the last two my management was in another state so I did not see them much. I had my annual review and was placed on a performance improvement plan. Everything on the PIP I backed up and no one would listen. Never had any complaints until three out of my control things happened and if we were to point fingers would have been to the sales department. The worst thing was every task they gave me they...

Just doesn't make sense

I worked for a company for four months as a temp to hire and the company doing the background check couldn't get ahold of an old employer so they let me go. After they trained me for the whole time. Doesn't make sense!

What can I do???

I was fired from my previous job (and my husband still works there) for what my managers considered "fraud"... it definitely wasn't and if you spent 30 seconds talking to me, you would know that that's not who I am or remotely something I would ever consider.

I was originally denied unemployment benefits because of the disqualifying reasons, but after filing much paper work and spending hours on the phone to MD unemployment office, it was...
