What can I do regarding my wrongful termination?

I was fired from my security job at a retail chain yesterday. All I was told was that there was an anonymous complaint made against me. First, I was accused of saying something derogatory, then I was told that it might have been racist. Later they said I was a hater of women and I was terminated. I told them that these were false accusations. I’m still appalled that their actions. I live in this town and I’m worried about my refutation and the thought of these lies spreading around.

The fact is that unless your termination violated the terms of an employment contract or union agreement, you have no claim here. As an "at will" worker your company could have fired you for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. Basically, an empoyer can set the conditions of the worakplace much as it sees fit, absent some form of legally actionable discrimination.
