About Me

Don't take what I say too seriously...I'm a dumb-ass.

Help with wrongful termination

I've been working for a local convenience store chain here in Las Vegas for a couple of years and I just got fired by telephone by my District Manager. I posted recently in General about being assaulted at work by a customer that refused to wear a mask. Police and EMTs were called...lots of blood. They suspended me the day after Christmas and just today informed me of the results of their internal investigation. They determined that I failed to disengage with the customer when I had the opportunity and are terminating me for violating company policy. This means they will deny me unemployment insurance.

They failed to provide security for their employees yet required us to eject customers for various reasons during our duties, specifically shoplifting, public intoxication or drinking on the premises or non compliance with mask rules. I was beaten and left with multiple head and neck lacerations in the course of my job duties and now the corporation throws me under the bus.

I guess I need to contact an employment attorney. Primarily I'm concerned with ensuring I receive unemployment benefits but I'm not sure whether I need an attorney for that. Any advice or recommendations would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

What should happen to this guy?
