Legal Question

Asked on: 5/04/13, 4:30 pm

I believe I was wrongfully terminated/laid off. I was under a 6 month contract with UCPD Berkeley based on satisfactory work and background check. I was released for not passing my background from something that they said "came up" during their check. After having a meeting I found out that they were basing it off of something from my past job pertaining to time sheets but the issue with this is that I had already disclosed this information before being brought on in November of 2012. I did so in my initial interview and also my interview with a background investigator in January 2013. They brought this up in April after I was getting ready to leave after my shift. I have a written statement of what happened with my past job so they had already known this the whole time I was working then all of sudden they tell me it was a red flag for them 5 months later. On a another note they put me on the new schedule for the whole year through 2014. They also had me working illegally according to their policy of having an 8 hour window between shifts which I have proof that they scheduled me against that policy. Would I have a case?
