I job share with another nurse who is resigning. She works 3 days a week and I work 2 days a week. Since she is resigning, they eliminated my position and posted the position online. Can my job just be eliminated like that?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Michigan

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

I am sorry to hear this; did you have an employment contract for a specified term?

Thank you -

unfortunately if there is no union, and no term specified employment contract, the employer and employee may unilaterally terminate the employment "at will" which means for no reason, so long as it is not for an illegal reason (ie discrimination).

That information is stated here:

I wish I had better news.

Most people are not aware of the lack of job security for at will employment.
