I work for a large, unionized and heavily federally subsidized company with nationwide offices. I have seen numerous fellow employees experience being pre-emptively fired after being charged with a violation of company standards or regulations, and then permitted to win their jobs back through investigations and hearings. In fact, it may have become this company's official policy to do this. My question is self-evident---is this legal? Or, do employees who have been treated this way have grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit?
