It is almost certain you were an "at-will" employee, which means that your employer could terminate your employment at any time, without notice, for any reason or no reason. If you had an employment contract, then the terms of the contract would dictate your respective rights and obligations.
If you find my answer is "HELPFUL" and/or the "BEST ANSWER" please mark it as such. I am not your attorney.

It is most likely you were employed at will. At-will employment means that either party may terminate the employment relationship at any time for any reason and often times without warning.
Now this would not apply if you have an employment contract and it states otherwise.
