I was working for Walmart Neighbor Market for almost 6 years. Last year around September we had got new managers who I thought were ok. Well over the months they started treating me differently until I got a write up for not doing my job. Well last December my supervisor told me that my support manager & assistant manager wanted to "Fire Me". I told him I left that they didn't like me & in January of this year they waited for the head manager & another assistant manager to go on vacation & then terminated me. Next they you know the assistant manager who terminated me quit & the head manager doesn't take rehire please what as t do I do? Since then it's been hard to get a job because of the let go. When I got my exit interview he never told me my I'm let go.
I am sorry but your post reveals no unlawful conduct by the employer that would give you a right to sue it.
The vast majority of employees in California are at will employees. Unless you have an agreement to the contrary with your employer, you are at-will. As an at-will employee, you can quit and walk away from your job at any time for any reason and even without notice. The flip side of that is your employer can terminate you, or change the terms and conditions of your employment (pay, hours, responsibilities, etc.) at any time, for any reason, or for no reason, and it can do so without notice. The only real limitation on this freedom given to an employer is that it may not do so if the reason for its action was because the employee is a member of a protected class of people, or because the employee engaged in certain forms of protected conduct.
Your post suggests no unlawful motivation for your termination. As such, you likely do not have a legal claim.
If there is more that is not disclosed in your post that would suggest unlawful motives for your termination, then it would be wise for you to locate and consult with an experienced employment law attorney as soon as possible to explore your facts and determine your options. I would suggest you look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.
Most employment attorneys who practice this area of law offer a free or low-charge consultation and then if the matter has merit and sufficient value, they work on a contingency basis, meaning you can hire an attorney without paying any money until the matter results in a positive outcome for you. Many advance all the costs of the litigation as well. Do not let fear of fees and costs keep you from finding a good attorney.
Good luck to you.
