The problem here is that even an unconditional offer of employment is not contractual. It is just an offer of "at will" employment, unless the agreement signed specifically states that you cannot be terminated without cause.
If what you signed was an actual contract of employment (very rare) then you could sue for breach of contract. That being said, I haven't seen a true contract of employment in a few years and that was for a CEO. As I said, they are exceedingly rare. You more likely signed a conditional offer of at will employment, which would leave you with no legal recourse.
