Yes you can. At least if that's the real reason. If you were fired based on your race, religion, nationality, gender, disability, age (over 40) or the like, then you might have a cause of action regarding your termination. Also, if your dismissal violated the terms of a union/collective bargaining agreement or employment contract, then it would be actionable. Othersise, not all employees need be treated the same or even fairly. Bottom line, in an "at will" employment relationship, an employee can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice.
