I posted in this forum since it seems like it gets the most activity any help with my situation would be most appreciated!

I was terminated by the bank that I worked for due to violating policy on ethics and sales integrity. I opened a secondary checking account for a co-worker which was approved and encouraged by my manager. Ultimately it was discovered that another employee was opening numerous bogus bank accts so they could earn a quarterly sales bonus. That person ended up being investigated by the bank's security  team (and fired months before me) which caused them to look at what everyone there was doing. The end result was that all of us on the sales side were fired. I've never been fired before and I don't understand how I violated a policy when my mgr encouraged this and approved it in the system. The acct ended up being used by my co-worker and all documents were signed by them so it wasn't like I just went in and opened an acct for someone who didn't want one. I researched my company's hand-book and it mentions nothing about this situation other than manipulating the system for bonuses however I never earned a bonus payout so what did I stand to gain from this?

I regress...

What worries me though is the fact that I carry licenses and what will show up on my CRD. I would like to find a position that deals strictly with investments and I don't want this to make it seem like I am an unethical person who is a risk. Can anyone provide some feedback?
