I have recently been terminated from my previous job. I feel like the company went about it in a cowardly way,making my immediate supervisor terminate me rather than the upper management! He said he didn't want to let me go. They made me complet...
Did they give you a reason for firing you? was it truthful? Also, note that there could be employer liability stemming from the failure to accommodate, as well as for the firing. Did they attribute to the firing to your inability to do tasks because of the disability? If so, the analysis is complicated but you might have a worthwhile case.See question
He is a computer software engineer and long time friends with his supervisor. I have all the messages emails and what not. I can also prove his supervisor was selling him marijuana
There may well be something here. The Americans With Disabilities Act can be a source of protection, as it protects against discrimination stemming from both disability and perceived disability, and the Family & Medical Leave Act may be as well. However, the analyses are complicated, so you will need to contact counsel to develop the right response.See question
Just a general question...I was recently fired. It had nothing to do with sex, race, religion, etc (the big reasons). Instead, I had a brief argument with someone...management did nothing to verify any of the facts, just took the other side at fac...
The general rule is that your employment is "at will," if you have no written contract stating otherwise. However, there are numerous laws (some of which you allude to) that create exceptions. To determine if there is a legal case, you would need to talk this over with a lawyer who is familiar with all the different laws and policies that can be applied to the situation, to see if your situation fits within one of the exceptions.See question
Federal employee injured then purposely re-injured by management removing PERMANENT MD and RA's; abuse, retaliation, discrimination, hostile environment. Much evidence.
I recommend that you further describe what happened, and/or try to frame questions that we might be able to answer. This conclusorily describes a situation that might be unlawful, but without more specific facts or questions there is nothing to respond to.See question
I filed an EEO after being fired at Government's convenience as Personal Service Contractor. If I apply for other job positions in same Govent Agency that fired me, can they refuse to consider me or am I protected? Can I claim reprisal?
More facts are needed to answer this well. For instance, for what entity did you work before? who made the decision to "fire" you? was it alleged to be for performance? misconduct? or was it really just a layoff? Was the reason given to you truthful, or is the employer covering up the real reason. Your complaint makes you "protected" from reprisal for having made it, but the future question will be whether a failure to hire occurred because of that complaint, or rather, for a legitimate reason. Consider posting some more information.See question

The sequence of the events you describe may be very important. Does it appear that you were fired in retaliation for protesting the assault? You'll need to contact counsel and provide many more facts for this to be sorted out. Don't give up without trying here, however. Remember that "employment at will" is irrelevant if the employer fires you for an unlawful reason, such as retaliation for opposing sexual assault.See question
