I managed a barber shop for a year and a half by myself averaging 20 haircuts a day. The owner then made her sister a manager of the shop, with no one other than me at the shop.
One evening her sister wanted to have a hair class at the shop at 6:00. I then texted them that I became very busy and would not be able to participate because the shop where they wanted to have it was very busy. Also, the shop hours that day were until 7:00.
They got mad, and then they made more excuses to fire me within a week. When I asked why, they then said that there were complaints of a few bad hair cuts and that would make their salon (which was a subsidiary of the barbershop in a different location) look bad.
I went to work that Wednesday to find the locks changed, and the owner then made untrue reasons to fire me. Now they have 3 girls from the salon working at the barbershop, taking over what I have built. In the meantime, she keep my personal data of people, which I left at the shop, saying she threw it out.
I have to now wait for unemployment to call for a claim; meanwhile, I can't contact these people because I do not want her to deny my unemployment and lie again. Today is Saturday, and all that goes through my mind is the people I miss cutting. The new girls in the beginning were saying I was sick. I corrected that to her and now they say I am no longer there. I do not want to get denied with unemployment If I reach out to these people and her knowing.
Is this wrongful firing? How can I make sure that I get my unemployment benefits?
