My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
The law unfortunately does not require an employer to provide an employee with warning letters prior to termination
. The only time that a person would be entitled to that is if there was a specific written contract or union agreement that said so. Otherwise, because employment is at-will, an employer unfortunately can let an employee go at any time, for any reason. There is no law that stops a business from changing their employee policies, especially when these are communicated to the employees.
They could not have fired you in retaliation
for reporting them to the state for discriminatory practices or safety violations. Unfortunately, the law does not protect an employee who makes these reports after being terminated - unless you had told the employer that you intended to report them.
If you were fired because of the contents of the letter, unfortunately, the law does not offer protection when an employee expresses displeasure with the employer or the employer's practices. If you have any evidence that the manager fired you because of discrimination
- based on your race, religion, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or age over 40, that might give rise to a claim against them. The best thing to do in that situation is to take your evidence to a local attorney who can review it and take the case from there. A person who was fired because of illegal discrimination may be entitled to reinstatement, back pay
, plus attorney's fees.
