If you got wrongfully terminated what is a good reason to tell the potential employer why you got terminated? By the way this person is not me. I'm asking for some else. The employee was a great employee with no write up and had great sale productivity but the boss fired him because he wanted to get his friend in your position. so pretend this is you. And your boss just said, Sorry but this is not working out your fired, etc. And you found out later the real reason why you were fired by the big mouth that took your place?Answer Question

The best reason for leaving a job is because you found a better one. In this case, I don't know what to suggest besides the truth. That way he doesn't need to remember what lie he told.

How long ago did this happen? I have seen the same thing said about certain big box home improvement stores that have a policy of not apprehending shoplifters. I still think that being honest is the best route.
On the flip side though, if the company policy was to not apprehend shoplifters then it might look bad that he didn't follow company procedure.

How about "it was a rather complicated political situation and I felt it was time to move on." Implying but not saying that he felt it best to move on from the toxic crap of suing them after they wrongfully fired him and maintaining that he is the bigger person for not falling into their political crap. Don't get me wrong every place has some politics, but when you can't win you take your ball and go home rather than proving how right you are. He doesn't have to prove that he was right and the last employer was wrong, He has to prove that he will be a dependable and worry free employee at the new place. Nobody want to hire somebody who will probably eventually sue them. Just like nobody wants to hire anybody with a highly negative attitude. Your friend might just have to find a job with somebody he already knows who knows he isn't the type to start the trouble.
