  • wrongfully fired Massachusetts

    My friend got fired because they say she stole. We worked in a salon where its service's. They said she was doing colors and not charging for them which is not the case. She was fired without any proof of this also she never got a warning. She filed for unemployment and received a 250$ check. They are disputing it and taking her to court. What will she need to be prepared? Also, can she do anything to fight for the unemployment?

    It is not illegal to be terminated for suspected theft. In at-will employment you can be terminated at any time for any reason except a reason prohibited by law (ie age, religion, gender) or unless you have a binding employment contract to the contrary. It is not necessary to give a warning before termination. (unless a contract requires it)

    All your friend can do is tell the truth. Good luck to her.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
