Thanks so much Legal Expert!
Yes,I too wondered if my termination was under that "at will" clause. Also, I forgot to mention that on top of all that, the employer did give me a severance. Is that because they felt guilty on letting a valuable employee (me) go? As I mentioned in my question they said I was a bonus to their office in my review.
Now, I need help on what to say to future employers when they ask me in my interviews, why I was let go from my previous employer. For an example, I was planning on saying " I was let go due to business operations reconstructioning and I although I was employed for only 5 months they gave me a generous severance and HR said I can receive Unemployment Insurance". Will my answer in bold work for me getting out of saying I was fired? I need to know because I need a new job fast. It is absolutely the truth about Unemplyoment Isurance and the serverance.
I am sorry but i am not that comfortable on saying i wasn't a good fit. Won't the interviewer take that as a negative? Also, is it normal for a company to give an employee that only worked for them for 5 months a severance, if they weren't the right fit?
Sorry i am just a bit confused.......
