Discrimination /Defamation of Character

I have worked for this company for 9 months. I worked 6-7 days a week 4-5 of those days were open to close. I went above and beyond there and had many regular customers who only wanted me to wait on them. This company is privately owned by Indians who were Muslims which I have no problem with. The manager and most of the staff are Muslims also, this is a Mexican restaurant by the way. But Iam not going to say what restaurant this is. A few weeks ago the owner and his wife were there because the manger was on vacation that week. Someone stole something like $200 right out of her purse. She had her purse sitting on a chair not in the office. Oh and by the way there are cameras everywhere. One of which is facing the bar where her purse supposedly was at. There were 3 of us servers working that day, dishwasher, bartender and cooks working that day. And also, someone was taking top shelf tequila missing with water added to make it look like none was gone. Everyone but me who were working that day were Indians. But Iam getting blamed for stealing her money and taking the liquor. I asked if they had proof of me doing these things on the camera because he was firing me for this. I asked outright if they had proof of me on camera going begin the bar and taking the liquor and stealing her money. Owner said no we didn't see you do any of those things on camera but the owners wife didnt feel comfortable with me there anymore. I didnt do any of the supposed things. I'm not a thief. I work very hard for my money as I was saying in the beginning of all this. After I asked if they had proof I was then told I was going to be suspended not fired. Owner then said if and when they find out who did this and if it was not me, I could come back to work. Oh and if I can do my own investigation to find out who did it I could come back. My question is why was no one else suspended for this? Why only me? By the way in half Korean, half American. I think I'm being discriminated against and they are defaming my character. Can anyone please tell me if ism right or are they right in only suspending me and no one else? I am very upset about this whole situation. And will NOT be working there anymore.

You might want to talk to a lawyer about it.

Hi Sandra, since I don't know anything about law really I think you should talk to a lawyer about it too, but I know lawyers can be expensive even for consultations. I found this website where you can have a free consultation: http://brandonbernsteinlaw.com/free-consultation/

And you could also try the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service: http://mvlslaw.org/

I hope that's helpful!
