Thank you for your reply.
I understand your frustration, you would have to show evidence of age/race/sex/disability/national origin discrimination though to have any legal recourse against the employer. Absent showing one of those reasons, you legally have no case against the employer.
I do understand your frustration, but everything you keep saying is not something that gives you a right to sue them. The fact they did not take action against someone using drugs or someone else without a license is not even part of your claim UNLESS you prove the ONLY reason they terminated you was your age/race/sex/disability/national origin.Under the MI at will employment law, it is not illegal for them to play favorites, so you cannot sue them for that reason. I wish I could tell you more positive information, but I can only tell you what the laws say based on the facts YOU are providing above.
I am not working there and have no communication with the employer, so for you to make that demand on me is quite unfair, because I would be simply guessing. Furthermore, that does not matter, since what matters in your case is that for at will employment your employer can fire you for any reason except your age/race/sex/disability/national origin and if you want to make a claim against your employer you have to sue on one of those grounds.
I am afraid that the at will employment laws are not written to favor the employees, but we attorneys did not write them and only have the unfortunate mission at times of explaining them to customers who get upset about being terminated.

Thank you for your reply.I know what you said you were terminated for and I told you that the employer can terminate you for that under the laws on at will employment and then I told you the only reasons the employer could not terminate you. If your facts do not fit into the reasons where an employer cannot terminate you, then you have no legal grounds to sue, as I said above.
