Can I be fired...

Can I be fired if I said I was going to call immigration on illegals that I know are not supposed to be in the state and I know our boss is know they're illegal

Lawyer's Assistant: Have they discussed the termination with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

I don't know only thing I know is I was told Thursday it would be my last day because I said I was going to call immigration on illegals at work and my boss told me because their contractors that I didn't have proof I have proof cuz one used to work for them he got arrested deported and came back and started work again and they fired me Thursday

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the workplace "at will" or union? Is the job hourly or salaried?

There is no Union and where hourly

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The only thing I'm worried about is my son still works there I'm afraid he's going to lose his job but every Hispanic we have in the yard is illegal I know this because they change contract companies and they had one name when I first started and they change their name when they went to the other contract company cuz I'm a blaster painter supervisor and I do their time and description of what they do during the day

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
