This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
The employer has no legal obligation to release any information regarding who they hire or fire. They do not have to tell employees why they are being terminated. However, if you were given an "employee handbook" then you can see if they have policy on procedure to follow when terminating and if they did not follow the procedure, then I suggest you might want to consult with a local attorney.The only way you could possibly get the information on whether other employees were fired the same day, would be to have a law suit pending and then subpoena those records.So if you find they did not follow termination policy and consult with a local attorney, a lawsuit is filed for not following policy, then the records on who was terminated the same day as you could be obtained via the Discovery process.I suggest you certainly can ask the manager who else was let go, if anyone. But they do not need to simply provide the information to you.Please let me know if you have other questions, need more information or clarification in this regard. Otherwise, thanking you in advance for a positive rating. Thank you
