So I am almost 100% positive I have a valid wrongful termination case on my hands. I used to work at a disclosed ski shop as a ski tech beginning last winter about December 1. I worked until about June in which I was put off my seasonal work shift and placed to 0 hours until the beginning of next season. I came into work about two months back to get my more hours put on with the starting of the winter season and I was informed that I had "quit." Now for some back story I have a twin brother, who worked with me at this disclosed shop. He decided he wanted to move to Mt. Hood, Oregon for the winter and went into aforementioned store to inform management he would be leaving in two weeks. Apparently in the eyes of the management staff where my twin brother goes I go, and they filed my paperwork FOR me, as well as I believe signing my name and never informed me of employment termination. Now my question is do i have a case for lawsuit against my previous employer? By the way this company is huge, estimated net worth hovering around 5 billion.
I'm not a qualified Lawyer, but from my studies, without any valid reason they cannot just dismiss you/tell you to quit. Let alone forge your documentation, the only possible reason behind this could be some-type of clause in a contract you signed with them?
hmmm tricky situation. time is definitely not on your side as this happened almost six months ago and you're just now bringing it to the table. you're going to spend more fighting it than it will be worth.
don't understand, what was illegal 6 months ago is still illegal shouldn't matter the time frame. But I was wrapped up in trying to get my job back for the past 4 months, with them giving me the run around. found out today I was not going to be re hired.
Lawyers' opinion needed does not equal Newschoolers' opinion needed. Don't get advice on specialized areas like labour from the internet. If you want to do something, go consult with someone in your area. It shouldn't be too hard to find.
1. You were wrongfully terminated under simple misunderstanding.
2. If your employer had a hint of coolness to them, or should I say...ability to understand their fuck-up, they would re-hire you.
3. They should want to rehire you given you are trained, you had a simple misunderstanding really, and its really just a small problem.
4. They made it out to be a big problem, they denied you employment, and they are not understanding this situation, or they do understand it...and they simply do not need more staff...or they don't want you to work there.
So you could fight them and maybe budge your way in to the job. But when you do get this job back, will yuor employer treat you fairly? In other words are you going to get stuck working shitty shifts, or low hours because well....you forced your way back in when they originally said no. Managers and stuff would presumably hold a grudge against you since some "little punk" (not calling you a punk...but no one likes being shown up by a younger person) was able to get their job back when they had done everything in their power to stop it from happening.
So I will kind of repeat what was said earlier, is the job worth this kind of trouble? Was it really that awesome of a place to work? It could be a lot less cool with your managers not wanting you to work there......
My experience, once you have the big shots not liking you at a job, you get stuck working shit shifts and shit for hours. A big box electronics store even just put my hours at 0 until I quit my job. Since by employing you...they don't have to give you hours...you are still employed....they just don't need you now.
hes a shop tech, shop techs are usually not teenage employees.
what they did was obviously not right, and obviously illegal. they either fire you, or YOU yourself quits. so either you should be collecting unemployment or you should be working.
i would fight it man, you've been out of work for quite some time, which they would have to pay for (like if you hit someone with your car and really injure them, part of the ass load of money you have to pay is because they could not work).
but my question is:
What ski shop is worth 5 billion dollars? its a ski company right? its an actual shop (i assume it is, since your a shop tech)? what state is this?

I would pm Drew he knows whats up in legal matters. But in my experience (a business law class) yes you have a case, you are not passed time, and if you're otherwise unemployed it is definitely worth the time for a suit. Good luck
