In a "Right to work" state, anyone can be terminated for anything. I'm in AZ. One of those states. But luckily they aren't pressing charges. You have a Spanish name. Could it be racism? You could file a complaint . Also file with that state for employees rights. They don't want to pay for unemployment insurance so they made something up. Happens here alot. File your complaints don't give up. It could be that they won't just do it next time on another innocent minority. They think we're not gonna do or say anything. Push back. And pray. Your enemies will not prevail in the name of Jesus. Promises of God are yes. And Amen.

Very true file a wrongful termination case and try and get other employees to speak up. Also just reflect on the time you were there the interactions they are cocky they don't hide anything. You just need to be made aware of the tactics they use.

If you file for unemployment and you got "let go" and you inform unemployment that you dispute the "just cause" rational for being dismissed, the employer has to respond within a short window of time to defend their actions with evidence. If the employer does not respond in the short time frame per your state unemployment statues, you will win your unemployment case by defective. If the employer does respond and defend their "just cause" for letting you go and you are denied unemployment as a result, you can appeal and have a "fair hearing" with a unemployment judge and face your employer in a Zoom or telephone hearing. You don't need to hire an attorney to help you, unless you feel the unemployment amount you would recieve would justify the $3500 to $5000 a lawyer would charge you.

If it was so egregious and you were discriminated against, I would then hire a lawyer and have a free consultation about your options. They will tell you what your chances of an award is in their opinion. They may say you gave a case and file a grievance with the EEOC.

At the end of the day it maybe easier to put your anger and frustration into something more positive and use that energy to find another job. It does suck and I hope you find some peace soon. B B

Did you lose your appeal to unemployment insurance? In most cased you can challenge the appeal, but you have only a limited amount of time (as little as 10 days in many cases). I would speak to an employment lawyer if you can afford it (many will discuss the merits of your case initially for no charge) if the job was high paying, high skill level, and you were a long time employee

Is there any reason, no matter how far fetched it may have sounded at the time, that they did that to you?

People use Right to Work and At Will incorrectly and/or interchangeably. Here are the true meanings…

Right to Work = Right to work in an employee group/company represented by a union without being required to join the union but still getting the same employment protections as union members under the union contract.

At Will: The employer or employee may terminate the employment relationship at anytime with or without cause.

Almost all states are At Will. Those that are not require legitimate proof of fault when an employee is terminated with cause.
