Re: Was I Wrongfully Terminated?
It was not a wrongful termination if they terminated you for having confidential information no matter where you got it - unfair maybe but not illegal. They do not have to terminate your mgr. just because they terminated you even if they know/find out the info came from him. It would only be a wrongful/illegal termination if they terminated you JUST because of a reason protected by law (ie age, religion, race).
It's up to you if you want to talk to HR but they still don't have to bring you back or fire the mgr. They don't have to treat all employees the same as long as they don't discriminate JUST because of a protected class as noted above (ie age, religion, race).
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
