I was terminated from a company because it was having financial troubles. The owner fired me to give my job to his wife because she would work for free. These were the exact reasons I was given for my termination and have even answered questions from the wife when she didn't know how to do things or where to find things. I have now found out that the owner is telling other employees I was fired because the company wasn't important to me anymore. He even went as far as to have a meeting with the staff and announce this. Is it legal for an ex-employer to discuss the termination of an employee with other employees?Can an employer discuss your pay with another employee?? For example , "John will be the first one I fire because he makes the most pay than all of you." Also can an employer discuss with other employee's about a private meeting that an employer had with you..that was concerning your perfomance..? Is it legal to fire someone if you think that your employee is taking their job serious , is it legal to fire an employee if they called another employee for a question that had to do with work?
