Q: Do I have a case? Victoria secret fired me claiming I stole from them. Never happened

1. Their policy is to check employees bags after their shift end. I've purchased items at the store, twice I had an item in my bag. I furnished receipt the item was returned. The second time, I couldn't find my receipt. However, there's a way to look up purchased items using the credit/debit card used. They did not give me a chance to use that option.

2. On several occasions managers would approve the use of expired coupons to satisfy customers, as long as it's within the week. The company thrives in satisfying their customers. Their meeting sessions is all about empowering employees to better connect with customers. Having that in mind along with the always "yes sure go ahead" I satisfied 3 customers. The head department flat told me that's not acceptable and go as far as saying that I stole from their company. I was scared and terrifying out fear of losing my job, I signed this document they insist I needed to signed because they are trying to help me. I lost my job anyway. I'm 19

A: Absolutely no way to say based upon the information stated. There is obviously written documents involved. The first step is to hire an attorney to review and evaluate the documents and any other information.

Most likely your desire to sue Victoria’s Sectet will be too costly to pursue.

Good luck.
