The Example Of Wrongful Termination Letter

This example is from an employee who believes that she was fired for insubordination. She uses all of her power such as her reputation, history, and the other references as the basis to present her case. She states that the false allegation is truly evil especially as a threat to her professional reputation. And her livelihood.

Dear Mrs. Hail,

On August 7, 2011, I was terminated from Hire and Hail on the grounds of insubordination. I was fired suddenly without notice and right after a brief meeting with the resources manager, Mr. Glare Hire. I received a termination letter state about my poor attitude and a refusal to follow management requests without including any evidence.  

I have worked in this corporate for over 10 years. During that time, I have established a solid good reputation of honesty and integrity in the industry. Supported by the last employee evaluation, I received a rating of excellent in all categories for a few months in a row.

On August 25, 2013, I was assigned to do a research study on KK LL Incorporated. The corporation was very limited in sharing the data to public. Then, Mrs. Hail told me that my report was not enough to get any result she desired. On the next occasion, I was asked to pretend to be a potential client toward the corporation. She stated that it will be a great way to get the pricing information that was missing from my prior report, but I think that this decision would violate the oath of ethical professional researcher and company policy. When I told her about this, she refuses my objection and told me that I was to use any and all means to get the required information regarding this problem.

The next day I was terminated without further information. Although our conversation was not recorded at that time, it was overheard by several other employees that I have contacted with their permission for being witnesses. For goodness sake, I will not release their name.

I respectfully request that this case be reviewed immediately. I ask you to respond to this letter tomorrow. If it is not, I will take action to remedy the situation.
