I was terminated for something I did not do and I was penalized for 8 weeks from unemployment. I appealed the penalty and it took 8 months to finally get my hearing. It was supposed to be continued because the appeal tribunal ordered my employer to send me a copy of the supposed video taped evidence (which I never received nor did unemployment). Two weeks later I find out that the person who had me terminated was fired. And a month later I got a letter from unemployment stating that the employer had no grounds to terminate me. I have been under a lot of stress and went through a great deal of humiliation because I was labeled a thief and it was proven that I wasn't. Can I sue my former employer for punitive damages, stress, humiliation???
