After being recently promoted at the group fitness studio I was employed at and receiving excellent accolades for my work and performance, my employer fired me for having a friendly get-together at my private residence that included several coworkers, friends, an ex-coworker and their partners/spouses. Because I did not receive any confirmation of my termination, I sent an email requesting confirmation for the reason of termination. A new set of reasons was sent in response - all points I can disprove very clearly with documentation and character reference from current and past employees.
Unfortunately nothing in your post suggests you were wrongfully terminated.
The law provides that you are an at will employee unless you have an express agreement tot he contrary with your employer. As an at will employee you can be terminated for any reason or even no reason at all. The employer does not have to tell you the real reason it terminated you. It can lie to you.
If you could prove you were terminated because you are a member of a protected class of people or because you engaged in some form of legally-protected conduct, then you would have a meritorious claim. However, absent proof of that kind of unlawful motive, your termination, however unfair, is not considered unlawful and therefore wrongful.
Good luck to you.
