Unless you had an employment contract or union greemnt that provided you be given a "pink slip" or letter or termination, an employer is not legally obligated to provide one. If for unemployment compensation filing purposes, you need to show that you were terminated, don;t worry since the unemployment office will contact you employer directly to confirm this.
