Today, my duty manager demanded we close the bar early because she wanted to go home. I was subject to abuse from customers for closing early, then shouted at by the duty manager for not being done. My actual bar manager fired me for closing early. FML

Why didn't they fire the duty manager. It was their decision and responsibility to keep the bar open. Your responsibility is to do what you are told as long as its in your job description. And this was.

Idk about you but if I sued someone I wanted my job back from, things would be awkward. I'd talk it out first... I suppose it depends on the situation.

I think 16 was trying to say;
"It depends where [it] is. A lot of places have 'no fault' employment laws, [and] they pretty [much] mean [that] employers can fire someone at [any time] without any reason."
Now your brains can have the happys!

I'm sure (although I can't say much since I don't know where you work) that if you explain the situation to the bar manager, everything will be sorted out. Also filing a complaint may be helpful too (like the user above me said) Good luck OP!
