I was told by my employer that I had abandoned my position after being absent for 3 days. However, I had a family medical emergency and was in contact with my boss to let him know what was going on. I have not received my final paycheck, nor have I been officially told I was fired. What can I do to get my final paycheck? I think my employer wanted me gone due to my knowledge of illegal business practices on his part. What recourse do I have?
