Unless you worked under a contract the employer is free to fire you even if it is wrong about its reason, unless there is an underlying motivation that is prohibited by law, such as an unlawful form of discrimination. You would only have a claim for defamation if the employer told a third party of a false accusation of theft. If the accusation did not go beyond you or the company then there is likely no claim for defamation.See question
I was a general manager at a restaurant. I was terminated from my job that I was with for almost 19 years without any warning. When I was terminated I was told it was for my personal conduct outside of work. I have never been talked to about it an...
There's not enough information here to assess whether you have a case so you would need to talk to an employment attorney about your potential claims. If the employer fired you for some supposed behavior that has never been a problem in the past then either there was something significant that you have not identified in your explanation or there is some other reason why you were fired. The only way to know for sure is to sit down with an attorney and let him or her learn more about the facts.

It depends on the framework used to request the documents. If you just asked for a copy of the document then you get what they give you.See question

In the state of Texas can an employer not pay you your PTO if you quit or get terminated? I thought PTO had to be paid out to you.
An employer only has to follow its own rules. If it has a policy to pay out PTO then it has to pay it out. If there is no policy or a policy not to do it then the employer does not have to.See question
Been working for a company ten years with promises of promotion to interview then be declined for the promotion with no explanation why the change in the promise even though employee is repeatedly complimented for such a great interview in additio...
It's definitely not bullying to decline to promote an employee. There are plenty of reasons why you may not be getting the promotion even if you have a good record and interview well. Sometimes managers will dangle the carrot of promotion to employees who have been around for a while and are good where they are but wouldn't be great fits for higher positions so they won't leave.
Unless you're being told a private investigator is watching you by somebody with actual authority in the company I wouldn't take it too seriously.See question
we were married 25 years, the entire time he was in the union. I appealed the decision and was denied. He died in 2002 and that clause was not valid then. Any hope?
Possibly. There are ways to go back and basically create the order to divide the retirement plan that should have been ordered along with or immediately after the divorce was granted. Whether that option is available to you depends upon the terms of the divorce decree and the plan rules in effect at the time of the divorce and at the time he passed away.
I practice both family law and employee benefits law and frequently deal with retirement division issues. I will tell you that getting this done won't be easy or cheap, honestly. If the benefit portion you were awarded was substantial then it might be financial viable to pursue this remedy. It's impossible to say without more information. It's probably worth your time and money to have an attorney review the available documents and give you a more specific answer.See question

If you were expected to be in class and you didn't show up then you're probably out of luck. You could apply for unemployment benefits.See question

I was misclassified as an IC. I worked full time for 2 years and was manager of a veterinary hospital. I have filed SS-8 with the IRS but and still awaiting a ruling (though fairly obvious to me). My question is when can I file a claim to be pai...
The IRS is only looking at the tax issue whether your employer or you should have paid the employee portion of the employment taxes you paid. The IRS does not get into any of these other issues.
The benefits and pay issues are far more complex and you would need to speak with an employment attorney in your area about your potential claims.See question
