they were letting other employees take my responsibilities even when they did them incorrectly. In an email the boss told me that "if sales dont get better there would be some disturbing consequences". During the last 6months they put every exaggerated complaint on paper and decided to enforce, all of the sudden, some made up policies that for some reason only applied to me. They accused me of tampering with the companys computer, which by the way everyone in the workplace had access to, and told me to "fess up " and admit to it or they "would make my life here miserable". Finnally tryed to make me sign off on several written up bogus complaints, which I didnt except for one on a miscommunication on a sales order. Then they fired me. Isn't this work place bulling? Do I have a case?
Only way to know for sure is to schedule an in person consultation to review the facts of your case and employment history in detail. Based on the question, I don't see a grounds for wrongful termination. You stated there was a "miscommunicatin" on a sales order.
Employers are allowed to hire and fire employees for any reason, as long as that reason doesn't violate public policy. You can't be disriminated against on only certain bases, such as race, gender, disability, etc...
It would be in your best interest to schedule a consultation with an attorney in person to determine whether you have a case and, if so, what remedies are available to you. Act quickly, as you are limited in the amount of time you have to file a complaint.

Contrary to my two colleagues, I think you need to consult a knowledgeable employment attorney, which neither of them or I are.
An employer can fire to cut back expenses, but there may be an age or sex discrimination lurking underneath which we are not equipped to advise about.
