Not if the employee is already slacking and that's just the icing in the cake. And SO is a lawyer.

do you really think taking your employer to court is easy??



f**k, I just had Ontario human rights take my ex employer for free and it was hard as hell to get done, my friend is suing the same employer and went to her own private lawyer, its been a year, nothing is done and shes paid out her ass for it.



Flip...if either of us could have paid a measly $85 to get out of what we got into I would have done it in a heart beat.

I know the original poster. She is not one to lie about what happens.



Yes she is late and so is everyone else. Things DO happen. There are WRECKS. You act like you nor your significant other arent ever late to anything come on now. A employer understands things like that happen.

Of course it is not easy. I just stated how I've dealt with that on first hand. :roll:
When someone sued my employer and I had to get the documentation ready for a depo. and such it took almost 4 years. Trust me I know.

Uhhhhh.....what?



I don't know how the laws are in PA. I live in VA, and unless you have it in writing that you were fired specifically because you are the wrong religion, race, or sexual orientation, you are fucked as far as suing for wrongful termination. The laws vary by state, but it's my understanding that most states are at-will, and it is just about impossible to get anywhere with a lawsuit if you are fired. Even if you have piles of evidence of sexual harassment, or anything like that, the courts just about always side with the employers.



It sucks, but I understand it too. If the laws didn't protect business, then any a*****e who's pissed about getting fired could bring down a whole company, which serves no benefit to the community whatsoever.

She stated "3 BIG times" so that implies that she has messed up more then 3.
I don't have to work so I'm never late. Either way though she said she would pay for it so she should.

First off I am not in PA. Second. WRONG! I work in the legal field you are not as you say "fucked". You just have to have enough to back your case up.



I honestly think it regards what you bring to the table. If you do not have supporting evidence then you are screwed. But like myself I keep track of EVERYTHING. Emails, time, etc.



But every court and every business is different. All I have to say to everyone is always keep everything. Track everything and keep files of everything.

To her Three BIG times could just mean that she didnt type a document correctly. You do not know what people think as big. So stop assuming.



Plus do you not understand real well this is what she stated:
I have maybe fucked up BIG time maybe 3 times the whole time ive been here.
That means the whole 5 years only three time. Woppty do!!!



Also once again assuming and not reading. I said that "you arent ever late to anything"
That does not mean a job. ANYTHING DEAR ANYTHING!

I have yet to be late for a doctors apt or a dentist apt. So yes, I'm not late EVER in fact I show up at least 15 minutes early.

!! same here
I have yet had an employer that accepted me being late because 'life happens'. Everyone gets life happens that's why your suppose to anticipate it. If I was scheduled to start at 5, my boss doesn't want me there at 5:10 because traffics bad..I need to leave earlier.

I don't know where you are (are you Booperelli?) but the laws are especially tough in VA. I have been "laid off" twice for completely horse shit reasons and decided it would not at all be worth it to sue. And trust me, I would have LOVED to shut down that second place...I was promised that I could keep my job there "forever" and that I was dearly loved as an employee, but the owner decided she wanted to pay herself more and me less, and I didn't go along with that so I was let go. Shit happens.



The OP could easily be terminated for no reason. If the boss wanted to fire her because of this recent screwup, she could say any number of things if legally challenged. The employee was late too much, she was screwing up too much, or there was just a better candidate that came along. Like you said, you need lots of evidence to prove wrongful termination, and it doesn't sound like it would be "wrongful" if OP lost her job. It's just business.
