On Friday I was told that my position was being eliminated

Customer Question

On Friday I was told that my position was being eliminated in either July or August and that I would receive a severance at that time. After the conversation, I told another employee my position was being eliminated, who told several others. On Monday I was fired for breech of confidentiality. I feel this is wrongful termination, and my own position being eliminated is not protected information. Do I have a case?

Hello and welcome.
My name is***** am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
If the employer breached a valid contract, or if your contract stated you cannot be terminated without cause, you can sue the employer for a wrongful termination.
If you do not have a contract, a lawsuit will be difficult, as New Mexico is an at will State, and allows an employer to terminate any employee for any reason, except if it violates the employees protected civil rights.
