Hello,Thank you for the information and your question, and I am sorry to read about your situation. What I say about the law applies to both Alabama and Texas since they are both employment "at will
" states. I can't guess what the motivation is of your employer since I don't have all of the facts, including those from their perspectives, so I can't really answer the actual question you posed. That said, employers are generally allowed by the law to be as arbitrary and misguided as they deem appropriate in their employment actions as long as they are not violating a written contract, written company policy or an employment discrimination
law.In other words, in an employment "at will" state, an employer can take an adverse employment action, including termination
, for any, or no, reason and with no notice or warning unless one of the exceptions I mentioned above apply. That doesn't make the situation fair, but it would be lawful, again assuming one of the exceptions doesn't apply. Of course if you believe that your situation fits into one of those exceptions, then if you are terminated you should consider sitting down with a local employment law
attorney to decide what your next step will be. Please feel free to ask follow up questions if you have them. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
