There is no right to privacy regarding termination. You could have been fired in front of the entire company, not just 8 co-workers. Further, unless you had protection under the terms of a union agreement or employment contract, you could have been discharged for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. Bottom line, a company can set the conditions of employment much as it sees fit (absent some form of legally actionable discrimination).
