Thank you for the additional information.
where there is no employment contract
or policy stating otherwise, employees are normally employed at will
, meaning that either the employer or employee may terminate the employment relationship at any time without good cause. Many employees are surprised to hear this, since it is often in a company's best interest to treat employees fairly and consistently, but it is not required by law.
Therefore, unless there are grounds to assert a breach of contract
claim against the employer, allege discrimination
based on age, race, gender, or other protected status, or retaliation
for engaging in a protected activity, there would normally not be any grounds to seek legal recourse against the employer.
Another exception to the employment it rule doctrine involves a situation where the employer is a government entity. Where an employee is engaging in constitutionally protected activities, the employer may not discipline or terminate the employee for engaging in such conduct. However, that exception does not apply to private employers.
Therefore, unless the employer here is a government entity, it does not appear there would be a cause of action that could be pursued against the employer.
