I was recently terminated from my job as a waitress for having an "outburst" against a manager. The manager illegally rang up a carryout order under my employee number without my permission. She did so because the order was for bottles of wine, and it is against the law to sell alcohol to a takeout customer, especially in the quantity she sold. When I spoke to another manager about this transaction, the manager who engaged in the illegal activity swore and yelled at me. There are several witnesses to our exchange, and all have written statements saying I never cursed or raised my voice, and the exchange was nowhere near customers.
The very next day I was terminated by the manager in question for the alleged "outburst" against her.
I filed a complaint with my district manager, and he told me that he could not allow me to come back to the location I previously worked at, because of the manager who fired me, but I could be transferred to a different location. I feel this is to avoid any legal actions, and to prevent me from filing for unemployment.
Is this legal? What are my options?
