I worked there for year and a half, and very important patient cancelled appt by email (4 p.m.) night before appt. Boss became very angry that I hadn't read my email before leaving work that day, and now is claiming I was suspended for misconduct. He sent me home on a Weds. and called me that night to fire me. Can anyone please tell me what constitutes misconduct in the state of Virginia? Do I need to hire an attorney? Should I get co-worker to testify on my behalf? I have a telephonic hearing in Sept. Thank you very much!
