I was terminated yesterday simply stated reason of not being

I was terminated yesterday for a simply stated reason of not being a good fit. I had only been employed there for 11 months. I was subjected to a meeting on Thursday when quite expectantly, my new supervisor gave out a proposed job description for all to review to all attendees. I quickly surmised that much of my job was in that new job description, as was the case for other key employees in the room. Questions and frustrations flew out immediately, I found myself humiliated in front of my coworkers who were very much thinking what I was, "What is going on here? Why is my job being rewritten into another position, NO ONE ever discussed this with me! Even worse was when I questioned some of the key tasks as they relate to my job, I am being told not just by my supervisor but by another Director who is suddenly becoming the spokesperson for this new position that they are not taking away our jobs, just proposing different ideas for this new position. Myself and others were clearly upset, frustrated to hear this other director tell us what was best for our jobs. This man has no authority over me, or my job! My supervisor just let him take the lead and argue with me about what my job entails in front of everyone! At no point did my supervisor ever follow up with me, discuss with me how my job would change or offer support. Instead, without warning or reason, he simply told me on Friday afternoon that this was my last day and he terminated me offering a 3 month severance package. I am 60 years old, getting another job will be difficult at best. The lack of professionalism and the creation of a hostile work environment was just wrong. I f I accept the severance, I can not file any adverse action or suit but I have no other means of support!

I have been employed as an EIT with a PLLC from October 2013

I have been employed as an EIT with a PLLC from October 2013 to present. Within the last six weeks, the man who owns my company has insisted I provide him with daily time sheets. I am the only female who works for this particular firm and no other employee is required to accomplish the same. In addition, the owner has been verbally abusive with me though I think it's just his method of communication and lack of verbal skills as opposed to intentional maltreatment. Only one other employee (a male draftsman) has been subjected to anything close and it was an isolated incident (phone thrown at his head by the same individual who owns the company).

I have worked at horse farm 1.5yrs and Friday my boss texts

I have worked at horse farm for over 1.5yrs and Friday my boss texts me saying "due to budget constraints he was going to have to cut back for 2-3 weeks. Said he simply cant afford to pay full staff for 5 horses, it is only temporary bt I understand if you cant wait 2-3 weeks". 2 days later, I went to the barn to find the only person who got hours cut was me. I am not on the schedule at all! He didn't even give me a 12 hour notice, he text it, and lied about it on top of that! I am a single mother finishing school to get my bachelors degree in health science, I must have $ coming in. Is there anything I can do?
