Employment law questions? Ask an employment lawyer.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Even as an at will employee, you cannot be terminated for making a claim under a statutory right. If you were entitled to overtime and a particular pay rate and he did not pay you as required by law, then you have your complaint you can file with the the Department of Labor or you can sue in court for violation of the Wage Act and Fair Labor Standards Act and also for wrongful termination for retaliation for exercising your legal right under those acts.
You need to file your claim or get a local attorney to file suit. For the retaliation claim you can also seek attorneys fees if you prove the retaliation was willful and malicious.
