I recently reported my superior to human resources department for wrong doing and exposing company to huge liability. I submitted all relevant information and documents supporting my claim. Colleague partially involved also collaborated my story.
Can company terminate my employment?
You sound like you were a whistleblower as to your superior's conduct. To contest a job termination, you should consult with an experienced employment lawyer who is licensed in Pennsylvania. PA and federal law vary as to whistleblower retaliation protections and you should seek legal counsel to negotiate their applicability in your circumstances. You must move quickly since many federal whistleblower statutes contain very short filing deadlines.
