I was fired in February and just got notified in June this was happening. Never been in trouble before. He claims I didn’t work the hours I did and the raise he gave me never happened. My raise went through payroll and he looks at the records all the time. All raises are verbal nothing in writing.

I would contact the local police and see if they are interested in prosecuting the matter on a criminal basis first. A lot would depend on the particular facts of your individual case.
