Basically, you have no rights here. That is unless your termination violated the terms of a union agreement or employment contract. The fact is that most employment is "at will", which means that a company can set the conditions of employment much as it sees fit. In fact, a worker can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. The exception being if their treatment constituted some form of legally actionable discrimination. In other words, if it was due to their race, religion, age (over 40), disability, etc. Otherwise, not all employees need be treated the same, or even fairly.
