A customers phone came up missing and they accused me when i told them it wasnt me they still fired me with no proof. I did not steal anything and expressed this with them but they still fired me. They have not paid me yet for the days i worked. It has been over three weeks since i have been fired and they still havent given me my check.
Employment / Labor Attorney
Unless you had a contract stating otherwise, the employer was likely within its rights to fire you with or without proof of misconduct. However, you are entitled to be paid for the time you already worked, and you are entitled to unemployment insurance if you didn't steal the phone.

You should be paid for the hours you worked.
