Thank you for your reply.
It makes a difference as to whether or not you are an at will employee as to what your answer is. If you want to upload your contract that you signed I would be happy to review it for you and let you know.
The reason I say this is because an at will employee has no real rights if the employer terminates them for any reason other than based only on their age/race/sex/disability/national origin.
