What to do if I was just fired under ‘suspicion of theft’?

They threatened to prosecute me, but I am innocent. If they only had enough reasonable doubt to officially say ‘suspicion’, cen they actually attempt to prosecute me? They threatened a lot of legal action but I am completely innocent.

Asked on December 5, 2013 under Criminal Law, Louisiana

Under the laws of all states in this country one's employment is at the will of the employer. Meaning, the employee can be fires for any realistic basis. I suggest that you may want to consult with your local labor department or consult with a labor attorney over what happened. One can be found on attorneypages.com.
