    Answered . There are multiple, important issues that come to mind with your question. Essentially, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Given your circumstances, you should not rely, solely, upon the advice given on this site or any other, as such is not privileged communication, and these types of cases are very fact specific. While an employer can terminate an employee for any reason or no reason, as long as it is not an unlawful reason, an employer cannot knowingly and wrongfully accuse you of illegal activity in order to "ruin" you. Additionally, being that you are over 50 and would possibly be considered as having a disability, the motivation behind your employer's actions could possibly be considered discriminatory. Again, only by consulting an attorney in your area will you be able to investigate this matter further. The eviction also poses some problems assuming that you were a good tenant that was up to date on rent.

    I would suggest that you meet with an attorney, immediately, without waiting for the threatened actions to actually take place.
