I was recently let go from my renovation job after just 5 months of work. This is just after I called in sick (my 3rd legally allowed sick day for my entire length of employment). My boss is claiming that it is due to permit delays, not me calling in sick, but the timing is awfully suspicious.

Is this legal? Is there a case here? Is this something I would be able to prove or that they could easily disprove? Would there be a good chance of winning such a case?

Please let me know, any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you very much.

Hello Joey,
If you've been let go from your job you could be entitled to up to 6 months of severance. Please contact our intake department to schedule a consultation with one of our lawyers to review your case in more detail and provide you with your options going forward.
