Before I was terminated I was aware the company was reorganizing and eliminating some Managerial position and I know what they have done this at the other satellite locations , managerial positions were eliminated and reassigned them to other positions.In my case, I have no previous write up but then 1 month before my termination I was written up for integrity because I did not notify my General Manager who was stationed at another state that I will be late and never made it to work due to an avoidable circumstances , ,so eventually my day off was extended one day, However, I notified my assistant in my office to manage the place in my absence . I was with the company for 16 years and my take was if they lay me off they will be paying severance pay so instead they decided to fire me to avoid paying compensation.
I am sorry but nothing you have noted here would rise to the level of unlawful conduct. Wrongful termination is a very narrow claim, and only arises when you can prove you were terminated for a reason that is in violation of a public policy of the state. Generally this means termination because you are a member of a protected class of people or because you engaged in some form of legally-protected conduct. Being terminated under unfair, unreasonable or even irrational conditions, or being terminated to avoid paying you severance, is not unlawful.
Good luck to you.

Maybe, maybe not. It's difficult to give you any analysis based on the facts you have provided. As such, and for good measure, I suggest you consult with an attorney in private to better determine your potential claim(s) if any. Many attorneys here in Avvo provide free consultations, you should reach out and let one give you their opinion on how to proceed. Good luck.
It is difficult to say for sure with the limited information provided whether you would have a wrongful termination claim. It sounds like your employer is taking your absences as unexcused or no call no shows. If that is the case, your employer may have had just cause to terminate you. No employer is required to pay severance pay unless there is a written contract promising that for certain types of terminations. You may wish a brief consultation with an attorney to provide all of the facts and get a complete response.
