Six months before I got terminated, my wife and I were playing around sending text messages to a homosexual. That homosexual saved those messages and showed another co-worker the phone texts. When I refused to talk to the co-worker who was calling me names, I called them back and said "Next time somebody calls me a faggat, I will deck somebody. Basically that employee told the Human Resources manager that, and the co-worker and I got terminated. The homosexual that showed the text messages six months after receiving them did not get into any trouble. During my unemployment hearing, the judge was asking why the homosexual who showed the texts not get into trouble, and the Human Resources manager said that he did not do anything wrong.
During the time working with the homosexual, he was trying to make advances on me, but I have no record of it, and did not say anything to anybody because I was afraid of what others might think also.
A couple of months later, I had heard that employees were talking around the company on how I was terminated. I contacted the Corporate office and told them that if employment records were confidential, why were people talking about it. I had not said anything to anybody I used to work with.
Basically my question is: What is my legal option to send this document into legal action such as, unwillful termination.
Unless you have an employment contract that spells out ceratin conditions of employment the default status is "at will." This means that you can be fired for any reason or no reason at all (save for protected constitutional protections like because of race, etc) just like you can quit at any time and for any reason.
While you can ceratinly check with a local employment lawyers in your area, it doesn't sound like you have anyting actionable here.
All the best,
