Can an employer fire and sue you?

You would think that firing me would be enough. They know I don't have any money.

Your employer can fire and sue you depending on the reason. If you caused demonstrable damage to their property or their business then they can sue for damages.

I guess if he fired you for doing something illegal, then he could probably sue you for the damage you caused, whether he would win the case would another story.

Any group or individual can file a civil suit against anyone. Most companies do not risk the embarrassment. Many times, if money was lost, they will file a claim for the damages. If you had a union, they should provide you with a lawyer, unless you violated the terms of the agreement.

It would depend on the nature of the firing. For example, if you were to have stolen from the company, they could sue you.


Answer by  knightmare (1231)

A company could sue anyone if they had a legit reason, including their employees. Obviously it depends on what you did that the company is suing you for, and it depends if that incident happened while employed or unemployed. If someone were fired and on the way out broke a window, the company could definitely sue them for instance.

Yes and yes, if you've done something wrong that merits being fired and sued.

You can be fired for cause in any state, such as poor attendance or refusal to do the job. They can only sue you if you are found guilty of theft or admitted to such.
