Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I am sorry to hear of this matter.Unless you had an employment contract, that being with a start date and an end date, and your termination was before the end date, then there is nothing illegal about the termination. Without a contract, you are an "at will" employee. That means that you can be terminated for any reason unless it is based on discrimination. Discrimination includes because of your gender, age, race, religion, a disability or national origin.
Because you were terminated, you do have the right to apply for unemployment.If you feel it is based on discrimination as stated, then you should consider contacting the EEOC and making a complaint.
I wish it was better news for you. But employers can hire and fire when they want, as long as it is not discriminatory and there is no employment contract. And they do not need to give a reason.
Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
