More details to this question:
I broke my leg on 8/16/16. After 5 surgeries in 3 months, I returned on 11/28/16. My store had been poorly performing due to my asst mgr quiting 3 weeks after my inury. Upon return, I was short handed the entire time. Not allowed to leave store to market due to company policy. I have never been written up due to performance. I was told today that my termination was due to numbers for last 3 months, even though i have been short handed the entire time. There were also 2 repos that were sold passed the 80 day limit due to the lady running my store while i was out not taking care of proper procedure. I was blamed for that as well during a state audit. I have email to back up showing i notified the acting DM that i had a mess on my hands due to those cars not being sold. I was told this morning that i should not fight this termination.

Tennessee has the "employment at will" doctrine. Look it up on google. You can not fight the termination.
