Im having suspicions im being performanced out based on lies.


You can consult your lawyer but chances are good you won't win.
And if you do, if will take forever to get back the job and that is all you will get.
The one thing Spot does seem to have a handle on is how to fill to the paperwork to cover their ass.

Not going to go too deep into my own case but the lawyer said we had a legit ADA case and would probably be able to get the Feds on our side.
It would also take a lot of time (which for lawyers equals money).

Who pays the lawyers fees if you win the lawsuit though?

In my case because it was an ADA case the lawyer would have been working pro bono because it was for a good cause.
It's not easy to find lawyers who will do that even if the cause is just.
They have bills to pay just like everyone else.

This is exactly what you trying to fight a legal battle with a corporation as big as Target would look like.

And that's you when it's over. Don't waste your time and money. Find a new job, call it a day.

I wouldn't bother... most of the rules protecting employees were real quietly phased out by the federal legislature over a decade ago... I couldn'y even get the DoL to care about clear cut provable time card tampering. Sorry

Unfortunately, having assholes for bosses isn't illegal, unless they're assholes in some very specific ways (discrimination, whistleblowers, stuff like that) and even then you'd need to have a lot more damages than just losing an hourly retail job for it to be worth pursuing through the legal system.
