    Question Fired and Lied to/ Reputation at stake

    I worked for an apartment communtiy in Indiana. It is primarily a student community so the leasing season ends about the same time school starts, which is August.

    Needless to say, work slowed down in August.

    I came in one day and was told that money had been stolen from the safe. The safe mind you is in the property managers office which is always unlocked and is always open. Both the office door and the safe.

    I volunteered for a lie detector test immediately when I was accused. I flunked the test!!

    Confused by the outcome I just went about my business. The next day I was fired. 2 of the other employees took the test and apparently passed. Several people come in and out of that office on a daily basis, ie. tennants, vendors, maintance, and visitors. Shouldn't they have to give a lie detector test to everyone.

    I applied for unemployment benifits and am recieving them, but it has been appealed and the hearing is in a week. Does any one have any advice for me on this situation when going to the hearing?

    Why would you volunteer for a lie detector test?

    No they don't and these people don't *have* to take the test.

    Never volunteer for anything such as a lie detector test.

    The property manager said that if I didn't volunteer that I would be fired any ways.

    If I have people verify that the safe always stayed unlocked will that help me?

    Talking Re: Fired and Lied to/ Reputation at stake

    My unemployment that was appealed went in my favor. The owner had no evidence, just like I said, and he didn't even know how much money was stolen.

    He also came in with a story about me stealing DVDs.

    Is this a type of "slander"? or maybe "liable"? He did have a statement written by someone.
