I'm sorry to hear that but not surprised. Once they got HR involved, I couldn't think of any other reason for that.
It seems so bizarre to fire what they admit is a great worker due to something like that. I mean they CERTAINLY wouldn't want to fix the spill and reinforce safety or anything that solves the problem, hell no, that's not the corporate America way - instead you find someone to blame and lower the boom. (Which is one of the reasons I can't stand working for the moronic lunatics who run business in this country). It's like working for Beavis and Butthead with MBAs. And since they screw up everything they touch they are ALWAYS looking for someone else to be blamed for that so they can still justify their obscene bonuses so my strategy is to make sure I can't be blamed because they are ruthless in their games.
You should appeal and should get a lawyer as well. You don't want your good name tarred with this incident. The question is - would you even want to work for these sort of assclowns again? I know, it's the same everywhere - I've jumped jobs trying to find somewhere that wasn't run by morons who are flat out nuts, and I finally gave up realizing that doesn't exist now I just hope to go somewhere LESS nuts, but would you want to work for them?
Just write your appeal letter from the heart. Tell it like it is and write from the heart.
