CVS Corp illegal fire of employees?

My brother has been a very recent victim of CVS Caremark's illegal fire of employees. He has honestly not stolen anything but a piece of candy from the store and a guy from the "Loss Prevention Department" of CVS Caremark spoke to him and suspended him the same day they talked (AFTER his shift was over). Sources say he's basically fired. He accused him of stealing "many things" and they had sufficient "evidence" to prove that. He even made him sign some agreement to confess of his guilt. My brother asked this manager to give him a day or two to consult with an attorney first before he signs/confesses to anything, and the manager simply said NO. My brother was scared and under great pressure when he signed this document. One of my good friends who is a supervisor at a CVS photo lab told me that this isn't the first time she's heard someone get fired over such a minimal thing. CVS apparently is trying to cut budget and is singling out innocent employees to fire. Does anyone have any type of experience or heard of anyone this has happened to? Maybe not CVS, but any other company who tried to illegally fire employees just to simply make their numbers look good? What happened and how successful were the cases?? I understand we should hire an attorney on this, but my brother is very softspoken and if we can avoid any big cases involving the big guys at CVS, we would. He basically doesn't want this to hurt him in the future when trying to find a job and that's it.

What are you going to hire an attorney for? There is nothing illegal about CVS firing your brother. In fact, that's what the store should have done. He admits stealing from them which demonstrates that he wasn't trustworthy. It doesn't matter that it was a $.99 candy bar or something more valuable. Why wouldn't... More
