The Law Behind Fake Reasons for Firing (Pretextual Terminations)


Great explanation of pretextual arguments and how to handle them! It's very important to be able to call it out. My employer tried so many of these and ultimately failed, but if I'd let them trigger me with pretext, I'd have lost.

From the beginning to the end of employment, create a file folder and keep copies of everything, including a written log of all incidents involving you, time dates, etc.. You never know when this evidence will be needed, regarding an AT WILL job. Document everything regardless of how minor.

If you get termination with lies when they give you your termination letter signed by HR. Can you take HR to court for defamation? Not the employer the person who wrote the letter and signed it.
