I was fired from my job of 6 years for a safety violation.
I had asked 2 supervisors that I needed a new spray mask as mine was no longer use able.
Was asked to mix the sprayer on tuesday as I didn't have a mask I open the garage doors for ventilation and made sure no other fellow employees were close.
Supervisor came and stated I should be wearing a mask which he knew I didn't have.
Next day wednesday went to work no write up or warning issued.
Thursday was asked to mix sprayer again and told to wear a mask.
Proceed to go find an old used mask no idea whose it was cleaned it using lysol wipes as best as could wore it and mixed the chemicals.
So I compiled with the supervisors request.
Friday went to work and was told I was terminated for the violation
No warning no write up ?
Do I have got severe nice pay and benefits
But am worried will not get unemployment benefits because roe says dismissed?
Do I have a chance of a claim for wrongful dismissal
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
