Legal Question

Asked on: 11/11/13, 7:07 pm

I am an african american male and have been with my current employer for about 5 weeks. There is an initial 16 training phase for the job. I was suspended pending termination by my job for tardiness. One of the three tardies counted against me was during training and a result of a mistake on the schedule given to me at orientation. About half of the class was late because of the mistake and we were all counted late. I talked to other trainees (caucasian) that were late because of the typo on the schedule and some of them said their respective managers had torn up their write ups. Mine however was counted against me and eventually contributed to my being suspended pending termination. Is there a possible case for wrongful termination or discrimination?
