Thank you. While the facts may be unfair, the key is that the employee is "at will." Thus, the underlying facts do not matter. Fairness is not required under the law when it comes to at-will employment decisions.
Most employees are at-will. The courts have explained it this way, "[a]nd it doesn't matter whether you have cause to terminate someone's employment. They are your employee at will and you can ask them to leave, fire them, at any time, for any reason, no matter how stellar their performance." An employer may discharge an at-will employee for good cause, for no cause, or for a cause that some might view as morally indefensible.
As an at-will employee, you have no legal right to continued employment. You can quit at any time. The employer can let you go at any time.
Because you are an at-will employee and because your employer has the right to let an at-will employee go at any time, there is no basis to sue the employer for wrongful termination
Now, does this seem to be fair or just? Of course not.
However, that is the nature of "at will" employment. You serve at the will or whim of an employer.
I know that this is not what you wanted to hear but you deserve a candid answer. I wish very much that I could offer you an answer that was more favorable to your circumstances, but the law seems to be pretty clear. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.
I hope you understand.
