Unless your husband has some type of employment contract with the employer, then I'm not seeing a cause of action here for you to sue under. Almost every person that gets fired has unexpected financial hardships but that is not grounds to sue. You will need to show that the company breached some written promise or contract to recover or show that your husband was discriminated against and that he is a member of a protected class. (age, race, religion, etc)
Proabaly not the answer you were looking for. Good luck.
