Lawsuit?

DMV made a mistake and got me fired from a driving / traveling job. Anyone know if there could be a lawsuit there?

My employer told me a ticket was making the company insurance drop me, so I accepted it as I did get a ticket, but later check my driving record to see it was suspended about 21 days later. Called DMV and they fixed it that day, also sent an e-mail to my previous employer letting them know the situation. Sadly the HR person will not talk to me at all, nor respond to my e-mails. SMH.

Todd - Best bet is for a free consult with an attorney who specializes in moving violations (if that what it was) or more an employment attorney. In any case, it is worth investigating but I don't think the company will give you your job back if they're not accepting your calls. Try to move on and place your hopes with another company. As callus as that may sound, that has happened to me a few times during my career, so I know it's difficult, but that is about all any of us can do. I do wish you the best.

Sorry, I wouldn't give up. Keep trying.. Go to HR in person, enough with emails with a copy of the letter from the DMV and ask them why?

That SUCKS! If it's an at-will employment contract, then you may not have any recourse.

You do have a potential Lawsuit and may be able to sue the DMV for an erroneous ticket and damaging your likelihood for employment by a government entity. Gather what pertinent dossier you can concretely and e-mail me back. "Plausible Denial" is NOT a legal ground for destroying someone's occupation and I can set you up with an Attorney in Colorado. Also, your former "employer" can be held liable and accountable for massive discrimination on the Unlawful grounds of "Wrongful Termination" and malicious ignorance to abate your employment disposition!

I worked with the HR department and if it's in Florida, Because it's a right to work state your gonna have to have proof. I hope you do. Emails, texts, letters not just your word. If you do have evidence call the State Attorney. Get them on your side. Best of luck. Most companies suck.
