You should have put her on speaker phone and recorded the conversation and done it from a personal phone. That way the call is logged and the time stamps match up and voice recognition and she's done. Depends on the State though and the privacy/recording laws.

Before you go any further with this a few simple questions:

1. Do you have several thousand dollars (at least) to hire a lawyer? I don't know of any lawyers that would take a case like this on the basis of a contingency fee.

2. Do you understand if you do file suit against this woman it may take years?

3. Do you understand getting a money judgment against her does not guarantee collection of any money?

I'm sorry you were the victim of this. However, you need to think long and hard about what you can do about it. You might talk to some lawyers. They will confirm what I am saying.

This.

OP, you shouldn't have threatened the woman in the first place. You basically made your company look bad and they canned you.

Save that money for interviews- you really don't have a case.

There is an old principal of Reps calling on clients/customers, you never threaten them. That is a quick way to lose a customer and having them complaining to your boss.

Any manager over reps, would have fired you for calling her and threatening her. This is an automatic firing expense. Especially when they no longer allow you to be in their store and do business with them.

In my work life I have been as high as Division Sales Manager over western half of U.S., and I have had to fire reps for not acting correctly with a client.

Blame no one but yourself for being fired.

What the female was doing is calling my company every day for a week and complaining to them about me.
"The female"? I think we're seeing the beginning of the problem here.

Agree. You had a PITA client and retaliated. Bad move and now you are paying for it.

And this is why I would never want to be in sales. No matter whos at fault, the salesman is always the one who is wrong.

Sorry, you have almost zero chance of winning any lawsuit. Sue away....you’re just throwing your money away.
