Can my employer fire me without notifying me about it?

Fort Smith, AR |

I haven't had any hours in the past two weeks EXCEPT one day. My son was sick the only day I had to work. Of course, i called in because I did not have a babysitter. They told me that i had to bring in a doctor's note for my child being sick and I told them I would. I called in to check my schedule that day and one of the employees said that I wasn't on the schedule. No one knows why I am not on the schedule either.

Arkansas is an at-will employment state, which basically means that an employer can fire and employee for any reason whatsoever, so long as its not discriminatory. I guess you are not technically fired until you are notified of it. Your boss may be trying to fire you without telling you, which, unfortunately is legal even though its not fair.
