I see nothing unlawful about their actions.


Arizona is a right to work state. That means, an employer can lay someone off without a specific justification. However, an employer cannot fire or discharge you for an illegal reason, such as race or gender.

Employment law attorneys help clients who have been terminated for an illegal reason.
