Thank you for your reply.
You don't mention what state you are in -- but the vast majority of states (with the exception of Montana) -are "at will" employers. That means that in the absence of a union agreement or employment contract, an employee may be terminated at any time, for any reason, with or without cause. You can be a great employee, you can be absolutely right in the fact that you didn't do anything wrong and didn't deserve to be written up, and it wouldn't matter. An employer can terminate an at will employee just because they woke up in the morning and felt like it.That said, however, an employer cannot terminate an employee for an illegal or unlawful reason, such as because of their race,religion, age (over 40), sex, disability or national origin. If you believe that you were terminated for an unlawful reason, then the first place you need to start is by filing a complaint, called a "charge" with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against the employer.The EEOC website is www.eeoc.gov.
