Re: How long do you have to file criminal charges
I'll assume you mean how long to notify the police since you don't file criminal charges, you file a report with the police.
If there's not a compelling reason why you didn't notify them as soon as you were made aware of the occurrence, they may not take a report, or take on to file but no action may be taken.
It really depends on the crime and the reason for any delay.
Now if your house was robbed *while* you were away, or in the hospital, and you notified the police upon arriving home, that would be different.
Getting fired isn't an illegal termination unless you are a member of a protected class (race, religion, disability, etc) AND you were fired for that reason.
Can you sue? Absolutely. Can you win? There's the rub!
