Can I be fired for sexual assault allegation that has nothing to do with the business I work for? Allegation on Facebook. No police involved

Employment can be terminated on a without cause basis for any reason (as long as it is not discriminatory). In such a scenario, the employer would have to provide either notice or payment in lieu of notice. In most cases, an employer cannot terminate employment for cause (and without any notice or severance pay) for an allegation of misconduct that occurred outside of the workplace and does not have any connection whatsoever to the workplace or your coworkers. If your employer is carrying out an investigation or if one has already been completed and you are being subjected to discipline, it is important to get advice from an employment lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights. I suggest that you give us a call at the number below in order to get further legal advice. We would be happy to help you however we can.
