  • Wrongfully Accused NC North Carolina

    i was in the field working since i do landscaping. we decide to take lunch at a bar and grill to watch the Duke game last friday. someone called my employer and said we were drinking . gave our description an dthe whole nine yards. they call us into the office, we told them what we did wich didnt include beer. the process went on for a week then next thing you know we were fired. they have no photos or nething else just words against words. can they fire me for that?

    Yes, they can. If they believe the accusation, they can legally fire you for it, even if they are mistaken.

    A wrongful termination does not mean that you were fired for something you didn't do; it means you were fired for a reason prohibited by law.

    File for unemployment immediately. While the termination is legal, if the employer cannot provide more proof than you have indicated that you were drinking while on duty (yes, I understand that you were at lunch), I would expect you to be approved for UI.
    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

          It's up to you how far you want to take it, and it's up to your college if they want to support you. But if you are asking whether or not, if you prove them wrong, they will be required to hire you back, the answer is no, they will not.
