Almost 10 years ago, I was wrongfully terminated from a job that I had been at for over 8 years. At the time, I wasn't familiar with labor laws or even hiring an attorney and when I educated myself on it, 2 years had passed. They know it was wrong because HR called me back a month later and asked me what it would take for them to re-hire me. I requested my seniority, back pay, and bonus that I had missed, I'm assuming that my request was too much, I didn't hear back from them.

I've noticed during my job search/interview process that some employers have unrealistic expectations in terms of the training process. I was fired from a job as a Corporate Trainer after only 9 days - although my own training program was supposed to be for 90 days. The supervisor expected me to be able to teach the class after only 9 days - when I was still actually LEARNING the job myself. It stands to reason I can't teach what I don't know.

I've been on some jobs where employers expected employees to fully know the job within as little as 1 or 2 weeks. Regardless of how much experience an employee has; being realistic - it takes time to actually LEARN, KNOW & more importantly UNDERSTAND the job and the company's culture. Rushing employees to learn all aspects of the jobs within a short period of time puts stress & undue pressure on the employee thus hampering their ability to effectuate their duties efficiently and effectively. Unfortunately, some employees don't seem to be aware of this.

I see a lot of posts on here about being fired for things that are lies, or HR departments not doing the correct thing to find out truth in different situations. It truly sucks that this kind of stuff happens, but I will say this, If you're fired for some bull s situation, the company was probably trying to find any reason possible to let you go, and this way they can "fire" you and you cant get unemployment benefits. Even so, I would suggest to people to still apply for unemployment, explain the situation, and take it to court need be. One more piece of advice is, make sure you document everything you can when you feel like the company you work for tries to "fire" you for reasons that are either totally false, or not even hearing your side of a story. It always helps to have written dates and times in which different things happened, like you tried to speak with HR but no one would respond, or your boss started to cut your hours on these weeks before this "incident" occurred. Just try to do as much as you can to help yourself.

Started 08/20- in the meat dpt., for only $11/hr. Unlike most other retail grocers, NO extra pay for Meat/deli/nor overnight. Beginning in Jan/'22, 5 of us got $1 raise ($13/hr), due to 2/3 shift- staff quit in mid- Dec. & almost immediately thereafter OPs began various attempts at forcing us to quit. 3 had gone by end of Feb. & we last 2 were terminated via contrived/false charges, respectively. During this time, 1 of the main tactics used was keeping staff #'s down to where lunchbreaks were summarily omitted due to customer traffic. I personally missed then for 3 months straight, & only able to get off my feet on bathroom breaks.... All this in/around a work schedule of 6- day weeks & anywhere from 9- 12 hours... Equaling $900- $1k paydays, but also retro exhaustion- as diagnosed by my Dr. during my annual phys. exam 12 days AFTER my release.

My wife just got fired from her job because a customer brought in fake money. She used the counterfeit marker and it came up the right color. Can she be fired for this or even sue the company over this? Thank you

This is wrongful termination, because it is not the employees fault a customer brought fake money. If she turned in the money to a manager or someone of higher authority, she has been wrongfully terminated. She does has the right to sue, but should discuss with a manager, general manager, or someone of higher power to discuss the misunderstanding.

It depends on the company and its policies.
