I work small company that is a owned by a larger credit

I work for a small company that is a owned by a larger credit union. 3 months ago they promised me a new role in the company because we lost a contract with one of our clients; they stated they still wanted me onboard after the contract ended in August. In my meeting then they told me they will write up a new job description etc. A week ago; the president of my company was promoted, and another employee; then they told me they "changed their minds" about me continuing and said I was being laid off because of the lost contract. I have nothing in writing yet; but this upcoming Friday is suppose to be my last. I am 40 years old; I hope to find another position but this whole thing seems very unethical and perhaps illegal were it has been handled. Should I sue them? Do I have avenues for complaints etc?
