Someone used my identity in 2003 for a job, and who knows what else. I was employed at a job a little over a week ago and was fired because they said I falsified my application, it asked if I ever worked for the company and I said no because I never did. They said I worked for the company in 2003 and I never did.
I would recommend contacting HR for the company to figure out why they think you worked there. In this case, the company is probably the only one who has the information that can help you here. I don't know that there is a legal right to the information, but you could try and appeal the termination and get information from HR to figure out why.

You have a statutory right to request your "personnel" file. If they say you worked there in 2003, then they have some record keeping requirements. Ch. 149 sec 52C & Ch. 151 sec 15. Or it could be a simple mix up if you have a very common name.
The first step is getting the correction done at the company itself. they should have a record of the employment of the person who you say used your name and identity . . and maybe a picture or some other unique identifying information that will show it is not you.
