I was recently terminated from my job and upon termination all my employer would tell me was that I was "unqualified" after I had completed my training, and had excellent reviews from both my trainer, supervisor and employer. I was also told a week prior to being terminated that I was fully trained and was on my way to beginning the shift and work I had been hired for. My employer just would not specify on how I was not "qualified" and just kept saying this is all I can tell you. I just don't understand how they can terminate for not being qualified when being told I had completed my training faster than anyone ever had and had beyond excellent reviews in my workplace.
Generally NO. If your status is "at-will" you can be terminated at anytime, for any reason, or for no reason at all. If you believe this is a pretext for a violation of legal your rights, meet with and retain an employment attorney to explore the surrounding facts and assist you.
