Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel. Can you please provide a little detail, tell me what information you need in this regard - in other words, what is your question, please?
Thank you.I am sorry to hear of this matter.Unfortunately, yes. You can be terminated for any reason that is not based on discrimination, as you are an "at will" employee. If you are terminated, I suggest while you can apply for unemployment, based on what you state here, it appears your employer has enough to show that you are not performing and can oppose your unemployment.I suggest you consider talking to your employer and explain what the situation is with your personal life and request they try to work with you.
If you are not terminated based on your race, religion, age, gender, national origin or a disability, then unfortunately, you will have no legal recourse if you are terminated for the non performance as you are stating here.
Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a Positive rating ensures i get credit for my time.
Only if you can document that you are being requested to do more work, or your responsibilities are different and your hours are different than everyone else because of a discrimination factor. Also, you might consider talking to your HR and if your personal problems are due to an illness or a sick family member, then you need to bring that to their attention.
I wish it was better news for you. But if you have personal problems, you should try to document that you discussed this with HR and tried to work out a solution.
