Columbus, OH asked in Employment Law and Employment Discrimination for Kentucky

Q: I am a senior citizen and was fired recently over a statement I was accused of saying. Which I never said!

Supposedly,I was accused of calling an African a "lazy N word". Supposedly there was an investigation done but the only person I believe was asked about the situation would call me "old and ugly". I should have reported him for these statements and other statements but I don't tattle, I just asked him to stop.

This is firing season where I worked so the employers are finding reasons to fire people.

I would like to talk with a lawyer. Thank you
