Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. Are you simply asking whether your facts support a cause of action for wrongful termination?
I will try and help, but you may not like this answer. Please don't shoot the messenger.
Absent a contract, all employment at will. That means you can be terminated at any time and for any reason (prohibited discrimination excluded). It does not even have to be a good reason. Again, unless there is a contract, there is no law that requires them to provide severance pay. With respect to the 401k match, the plan documents should spell out what happens in these situations. I would look at that.
I hope this helps. If you need more, holler back at us.
