i was never told why i was terminated other than i violated company policy,am i entitled to a written explanation and any evidence they used to terminate me,also do they not have to follow termination procedure ,thank you
You may certainly make a respectful request for the reason "why" you were terminated, but don't be surprised if your request goes unanswered. What you ought to consider is to request, in writing, a copy of your personnel files. In Connecticut we have enacted a law many years ago that permits employees, current and/past the right to not only inspect such files, but to obtain a copy, as well. Did you retain a copy of the employer's work rules or employee handbook? Once you have this information, you may than want to consider obtaining a consult with an employment lawyer. Avvo is an excellent source to identify employment lawyers, whom, like myself practice exclusively in this field.
