Momence, IL |
I was terminated for (being rude to a customer) when I tried to explain my side I was in the wrong and they stated that I was rude to customers before just nothing was ever done they claim it took over 45 min to calm the lady down
Momence has a store? Seriously though, unfortunately for you Illinois is an "At-Will" state, meaning you can be fired at any time, for just about any reason except race, sex, religion, or veteran status. Sorry.
As an at-will employee, you can quit at any time for any reason, you can be fired for any reason, a rotten reason, or no reason, except unlawful discrimination. If you do not have an employment contract or union to represent you, your recourse is limited. Discrimination based on age, gender, race, religious beliefs etc.... may give rise to a different answer.

If you have a discrimination theory about retaliatory discharge or hostile workplace conditions you'll need a lawyer. Religious belief, age, gender, race etc. all are discriminatory reasons for which you cannot be legally fired and upon which you might base a wrongful termination suit.
