Hello and welcome. My name isXXXXX am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Under the law in Mississippi, an employer can terminate an employee for any reason,
except if they belong to a Union, or the reason is due to the employees, race, gender, age or any other protected civil right,
As long as the reason is not discriminatory, the employer can terminate you for any reason,
however you could apply for unemployment benefits as this was not misconduct,
okay thanks that's what I was what I needed to know
Good luck, and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
If satisfied please provide us with positive feedback,
okay thanks again
