Legal Answers
Q. What can I do about being fired from a job without any reason whatsoever
A: I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Assuming you are not a member of a Union, you are likely an at will employee. As such, you are provided very few rights under Alabama law. An at will employee may be terminated for good reason, bad reason or no reason at all. Exceptions primarily relate to illegal (race, religion, sex, age or national origin) discrimination under federal law. You did not mention any discrimination, and therefore, you likely do not have a claim. I wish you the best.
Q. My husband was just fired from his job where they claimed he had a gun at work. This is false. Can we file civil suit?
A: Is your husband a member of a labor union? If not, he is likely an at will employee. A at will employee can be terminated for good reason, bad reason or no reason at all.
Q. In Alabama If someone doesn’t pay after having a debt judgement against them can they be jailed for contempt of court
A: If it's a failure to pay court ordered child, then it's not the same as an ordinary money judgment. Contempt is possible based on noncompliance with a court order.
