Fired

questions & answers

Question: I was fired for forwarding an email deemed offensive...no nudity but the word penis appeared. Other people have received only reprimands for like offenses. I believe the termination was personal because the Pres. didn't like me...My sales performance was not in question. Others have numerous formal complaints against them and were ordered to anger mgmt. classes, but still employed. I knew there was a policy against what I did...even my boss and I traded emails before. Do I have a chance at any recourse?

Answer: For information on work place matters and how laws can apply to them, please visit the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission website.  Work placed issues can be very complex and time sensitive. You may consider seeking detailed legal advice from an attorney.
