I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs. Thank you for your patience as I review the question. I will post my response shortly.
You do not have a written employment agreement. So, that makes you an at-will employee. As such, your employment is terminable at any time.
However, you may be able to make a viable claim under the doctrine of promissory estoppel.
The elements of promissory estoppel are: (1) a clear and definite promise; (2) made with the expectation of reliance thereon; (3) the promisee in fact reasonably relied on the promise; and (4) detriment of a definite and substantial nature was incurred in reliance on the promise.
You would sue in the county where the employer lives.
