Getting fired for coworker lies Tennessee
A coworker lied & said I assaulted her. The company has policies on handling complaints. You have to file an incident report, have the investigator check into it & he has to decide if further action is needed. NONE of that was done. But 3 weeks later, after her hand written note, I was called in & fired. I was going to sue & my lawyer called her. She said all I did was touch her arm while talking to her. Then I get a letter from last week, 8 months after the "incident" & he dropped the case because there's a hand written letter saying I hit her 3 times at work. Yet she didn't fight back, call for help, call the police & file charges, etc. Can't find a lawyer & sue the HUGE non-profit (yeah, rightd!) org. If I can sue the girl, she'll tell the truth, unless they pay her off to keep lying, & then I can sue the company. Any ideas on how to get a lawyer to work for free until I win or how to sue the girl?

- In fact, ethically I am unsure that an attorney could take your case under a contigency fee.
Moreover, unless you can prove she is lying and/or that the employer is complicit in her lies, then you have only a he said/she said case.#1; Sat, 24 Jun 2006 14:54:00 GMT
- Lawyers generally don't work for free. If you can't find someone to take this on contingency, that may be a sign that you don't have a strong case.
You posted under wrongful termination. Legally, a wrongful termination is one that is specifically prohibited by law. It's not one that is unfair, arbitrary, done without any warnings, or based on false information. I'm not convinced that you have a strong case against the organization.#2; Sat, 24 Jun 2006 13:14:00 GMT
