because its against company policy for family members to work together everybody in there is related so why was I the only one got fired what do I do please help me. Everybody knew she was my sister even the managers if it was there policy they should have never hired me.

No you won't be able to sue! It's unfortunate that this happened!! I've seen it happen way to many times but you signed the paper work and in the paper work contains the policy whether it not you read it it's still there! But they should of let the new hire go before you since they chose you this shows they weren't willing to let you move any higher in the company!! relatives are not allowed to work together cause there might be opportunity for favoritism or even theft to happen!! I would suggest you ask the unemployment office if there is any thing you can do but once they ask for the paper work you signed the chances are very slim

The only papers i signed was my app and papers for taxes I wasn't even given a handbook. It's there fault u think if I was the hiring manager and i knew the policies why would I hire family and its the policy.

I don't think there is much you can do since the company has a policy, which you agreed to follow when you signed your work contract with them. However, you should talk to a lawyer for more professional advice on what to do.

Everyone knowing your sister was employed at the time you were hired is not good enough as an evidence because it's not documental. Meaning, what everyone knew or didn't know will not give you a benefit of doubt. But if the policy of not allowing family members to work together was formed after you were hired then it will not affect your employment & you can sue the company for voluntary discrimination or maltreatment. If the policy was in effect before your hiring, you can, sadly, do nothing. They are well within the law to cut you off.
