I do not have a copy of the employment contract but most likely it wouldn't state that I could only be terminated with cause.
The reason I mention age is that in December another manager who had recently turned 65 was also terminated "without cause". I have no communication with the company to know if my position was replaced by a younger person however in the last year 3 additional younger employees were hired and I was asked to pass on my knowledge to one of these in particular. Also, at the beginning of the year 2013 I saw a headcount chart that was submitted as part of the budget for the year and in which my position was eliminated, as I recall about Q3, and when I asked my boss if he planned to terminate me he said not at all but that he just reclassified my position to Sales.
No, no evidence that being a veteran had anything to do with this termination.
