Is a company allowed to sue a former employee for legal fees resulting from a wrongful termination suit?
In short, the healthcare company I am with fired an employee for refusing to work a regularly scheduled work day. She told her supervisor "I am am not coming in tomorrow because I am going to a party." The supervisor told her if she did not come in to work, she would be fired. She did not come in and was then fired. She is now suing the company for wrongful termination. Are we allowed to counter sue for the amount of our legal fees?
