Good evening and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
I can certainly understand your frustration with how you were treated. However, it is legal because employment in the state of Kansas is "at will
" absent an express agreement to the contrary. At will employment can be terminated for any reason not amounting to discrimination
on the basis of a legally protected trait (race, religion, gender, etc.) or retaliation
for engaging in certain forms of legally protected conduct (filing a wage
claim, taking FMLA
leave, etc.). It doesn't matter whether the basis for termination is fair, reasonable or even true.
So, an employee can be terminated even if they have been told that they would have a full time position, and even if their feedback has always been positive. From a legal standpoint, these things are irrelevant because an employee is not legally obligated to do what is fair or reasonable.
I wish that I could tell you that what you have described is illegal, but it simply is not. Nonetheless, I hope that you appreciate my explanation as to why and that it enables you to move on in your search for new employment. An individual in your circumstance should be eligible for unemployment benefits
until you find another job.
Please do not hesitate
to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further. If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you.
Very best wishes moving forward.
