    hypothetical situation

    let us pretend that you are wrongfully fired from your job and you don't find out you are fired until five days after the day you were let go. You decide to file a complaint against this company but hear nothing from them. You already have another job, what would be your next move to a resolution?Who would you talk to?

    Sounds like you or a friend of yours is having a bad week.

    If I was in this situation, and were really wrongfully fired I would push some type of legal action. I may have another job, but that company needs to pay for how they treated me. There is a reason they have laws against this type of thing. I may not be a lawyer, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before.

    I would go with either an arsonist or a hitman, whichever is cheaper. Both will probably be effective.

    Re: hypothetical situation

    What is the difference between being let go and fired in this case, and how are they 5 days apart.

    I don't understand this part. Did you just keep going to the job for those five days?

    Re: hypothetical situation

    Speaking hypothetically, I would have "struggled" to find another job and also talked to a lawyer.

    Re: hypothetical situation

    Define "wrongfully". Were you fired because you are a certain race/color/creed, or were you fired because you are so bad at your job even a huge event such as getting fired could go unnoticed for 5 days?

    It took 5 days to "fix the glitch".

    Re: hypothetical situation

    Depends, did you ever tell anyone at work that Iowa State needs to bring baseball back? If so, it voids all legal action that you may have been able to take. And is usually grounds for immediate termination.

    Re: hypothetical situation

    Iowa is an at-will employment state. You can be fired for any reason - good cause, bad cause or no cause at all - except for race, creed, and other federally protected groups.

    You can sue for unemployment if they contest that, but since you have another job I think there is nothing you are owed by your former employer.

    I am not an attorney.
