Thank you for the information and your question and I am sorry to read about your situation. Although Delaware, like most states, is an employment "at will
" state, which generally means that an employer may not only let an employee go for any, or no, reason and with no notice or warning unless the termination
violates a contract or is motivated by unlawful discrimination
, the courts in Delaware has created one more exception. That exception is that all employment agreements are bound by the legal doctrine of "good faith and fair dealing."
I can't guess whether or not your employer violated that doctrine since I don't have the facts from their perspective, but based only on what you have shared, there might be a valid legal claim that they violated that doctrine. You will need to sit down with a local employment law
attorney and go over the timeline and all of the facts of your case to see if they think you would be successful with that claim in the local courts based on what they know about the attitudes of the local judiciary.
Please feel free to ask for clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
