From what you have written, you may have a case for wrongful discharge with respect to the reasons why you were terminated due to your observation of improprieties at the office you worked for. I suggest that you consult with a labor attorney about your matter as well as make a claim with your nearest department of labor as to the reasons why you were terminated.
