Whether you have a case depends on what state you work in, and the respective employment laws of that state. (If you're not in the States, disregard this comment.) Regardless of the actual laws, you can take a gamble on whether your boss is aware of the laws. Threaten a lawsuit. The workplace environment doesn't sound ideal and you may not want to return, but maybe you can finagle a severance payment out of it.

If they live in an At-Will work state, the person can be fired for any reason.

That's good to know, thank you. In England you can't just fire people when you feel like it. We don't really do "lawsuits" either. Was wondering what all of the comments were about and why mine was getting severely down-voted. Now I understand a little bit more about America :)

Contact your state department of labor to see if you qualify for unemployment insurance. Also let them know of the situation and see if there is anything you can do about it. Good luck!

Does your boss have a boss? Then take it up with that one. There are many out there that fuck up their work and rather fire a scape goat to cover it up. Exposing them to the higher up won't always get your job back but it might get your former boss in a shit of trouble.
