    I'm sorry to interrupt your thread, but i cannot find a way to post a new question to the forum. I have a wrongful termination question I need help with.
    I was hired by a medical billing company from a Dr. I had worked for for 8 years. They were hoping to sign her on as a new account upon my resignation. When she deferred, I was fired from my new job after 2 weeks for misrepresenting myself as a skilled biller. I know it was because I wasn't able to bring her account to them. Now I am unemployed, when I had a stable position with my former employer. Do I have any recourse?

    This was not a wrongful termination, sorry.

      I have moved your queston into its own thread. You start a new thread by clicking on the blue button that says, New Thread, located on the blue bar that bisects the page approximately one third of the way down. You cannot see this button while you are reading someone else's thread - you have to exit the thread to see it.

      As Dogmatique says, what you have described does not constitute a wrongful termination. They are at liberty to terminate you if you are unable to meet their expectations.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        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

          My only thought is that hopefully you left your previous employer on good terms and may be able to get your job back. Other than that, it is time to hit the classified ads. Sorry.
          Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

          I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.
