Good idea. Its sales...few people last very long in rep positions. As a result theres also always a lot of available open positions, so no need to look too much into the rear view mirror.

I was with the company for 15 years. I believe all things happen for a reason and am glad I'm out. Thank you all for your kindness and help (except you charlygal, you said nothing to help. Thanks for trolling!)

Since my boss had told ME to make the other problem with this client go away, I was sure he would tell me the same thing so I didn't call him about it.
I told the female client If she ever called my company again and told them I was stealing I'll call your corporate company, tell them what you are saying about me and then they will fire YOU.

The female told her assistant manager that I threatened to get her fire.
The assistant manager called my district manager and told him she never wanted me in their store again and she wanted a different rep.

My boss fired me for getting kicked out of a store.

Is there anyone here I can sue? I don't want my job back. I want people to pay for them causing me to lose my livelihood.
Is there anything I can do or should I just go on? I don't want to attempt to do anything until I know if I have a leg to stand on.
Appreciate your help.

Wow, you have been there for 15 years. You are a veteran employee. Sad thing is that a good number of employers fire good employees over nonsense. My best bet is to just move on. Sales jobs don't require a degree from Harvard or Stanford.

Grounds for termination are as following.


ANYTHING except discrimination against protected groups.

Since you're not in a protected group and you were not discriminated against because of your membership in a protected group, game over. Stick a fork in it, you're done.

Threatening a customer/client is an automatic firing offense for any salesperson working 1 day or 50 years by any company, THIS IS THE ULTIMATE #1 NO-NO.

Welcome to the real world. Your parents can't help you anymore.

Default Violating Company Policy

On my UI Notice of Determination it states that my company said I "was discharged for failure to comply with policies of the Employer."

It goes on to say, "Evidence is insufficient to establish that (my) alleged actions were a violation of a duty or obligation reasonably owed the employer as a condition of Employment."

I'm assuming since my former employer couldn't come up with the "policy" that I violated that's why I was granted UI.

The boss called me and said that since I violated the company policy they are terminating me.

I asked the big guy to show me the policy that's he's referring to but he cut me off. He said it doesn't matter who's right or wrong, you violated the "policy."

I couldn't have violated any policy because no such policy exists. Not even in hearsay. No documents, nothing.

I have it all documented. Do I have some kind of case against my former employer?

Do you have a case? Probably.

Is there any useful outcome in pursuing it? Probably not.

Employment across nearly all the US, and in KS and MO (you don't say which KC...) is "at will." You can be terminated for any reason, or none. (You can also quit for any reason, or none.)

So unless there is an aspect of discrimination or 'unfair practice,' which would have to be proven, it really doesn't matter why an employer dumps you, or even why they say they did. The only slim basis for action lies in their defaming or slandering you to the public... and don't bet any wooden nickels on that one unless they took out a full page ad to diss you.

If it was preventing you from getting UI, I'd probably make a fuss about it. But if you're getting UI as a result of this determination, then I don't know if there's much use in pursuing anything legally. The only thing I'd potentially be upset about is the reason for termination being 'for cause'.

Did you and your boss butt heads often? Would there be any other reason why he'd treat you this way?
