Yes. As an at-will employee you can be fired for anyone reason except those prohibited by law.
The short answer is YES. In an "at will" state, and employer can fire you for no reason or a good reason. They just can't fire you for a bad reason.
The state of Mississippi does not certify lawyers in any specific category of law and the decision to hire an attorney should be taken only after careful consideration. My profile and any answers to questions given are strictly for the purpose of advertising my services. Nothing said should be inferred to create a lawyer/client relationship or be considered specific legal advice on your situation. Feel free to call me at 662-563-9625.
You can be fired for any reason, other than being a member of a federally protected class. You really need to focus on your DUI. This is a serious charge and the new laws increase the sentencing but does allow for more options. PLEASE contact an attorney to discuss this matter. I know myself and many on this site offer free initial consultations and defend DUIs statewide
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.
