Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
Can you tell me what state this is in, and whether there are written policies regarding such terminations (and whether intentions have to be communicated or not)?
State of California. The employer is Stanford University and I believe there would have some written policies. I do not know whether intentions have to be communicated or not.
Typo on earlier reply. State of California. The employer is Stanford University and I believe the University would have some written policies. I do not know whether intentions have to be communicated or not.
Thank you. Unfortunately this would be a California employment law question (a category that I am not an expert in, so I am going to opt out and allow a California attorney to assist further).
