My employer is requesting a W2 which I don't have. I was a contractor never filed 1099
Your question is for an employment lawyer, not workers' comp, so I have reposted it. However, I am not sure there is enough information in the question to adequately answer. Good luck.
You are in an "at-will" state. You can be fired or terminated anytime they want for any reason or "no" reason. The fact that you were a contractor and do not have a 1099 implies to them maybe that you did not declare that as income. Even if you did, they can fire you as long as it is not because of discrimination because of a protected group you might belong to. For example: over 40 years of age, minority, color, language, national origin, prior arrest, a woman.......etc. But they hired you so any discrimination charge will be virtually impossible to prove.
Best to start looking or another job. Good luck.
I am licensed to practice law only in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Therefore, my knowledge is based primarily on law in those two states and general and Federal legal concepts. My answering your question is offered only as a free courtesy to provide you with general non-specific information. It is intended to help you when you seek and find a local attorney licensed in your state. This answer does NOT create a client-attorney relationship nor create any expectation of confidentiality or privacy concerning your public post. My answer is based only on the limited facts/information that you have presented in your post. For any lawyer to give you full and reliable advice, would require at the least, full one-on-one dialogue(s) with questions and answers being exchanged and any evidence being presented. Before taking any action or deciding to take no action, I recommend that you consult with a local attorney(s) of your choosing; either private or with a non-profit organization that helps individuals without the means for hiring a private attorney. Good luck in your search to find a legal solution to your situation.
