Maryland is an "at will" employment state. This means that you can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, so long as the basis for the termination is not discriminatory (i.e. based on race, gender, disability, etc.).
You might want to review your corporate handbook to see if there is any kind of progressive discipline policy which may protect you and outline the steps the company has to take before termination in instances such as this. However, most companies will -- despite a discipline policy -- reiterate that your employment is at will if you don't have a specific employment contract.
