JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- The On Your Side team is working to address your issues and help you find solutions. Here are a couple people we were able to help today.

Wrongfully terminated?

After two years at her job, Brandie believes she was wrongfully terminated from her job because she missed too many work days to care of her sick child.

Brandie, mother of a young child, said "I feel as though my rights were violated."

Here is what FCN suggested she do.

1. Consult a wrongful termination attorney.

2. We researched what your rights are as an employee if you believe you were wrongfully terminated.

A) Nolo.com, a website that says it is a legal encyclopedia, explains what your rights are in a case of what may be wrongful termination.

Pizza problem
