I've been with my employer for almost a year. Today I was informed I would be terminated in a month. When asked for clarification, my performance was not discussed. Instead, perceptions concerning my enthusiasm for our profession were cited along with "we feel your role just isn't a good fit for you or for the company." While I appreciate the advanced notice, I'm baffled that I was not given any written or oral warnings to address whatever underlying concerns are motivating this decision. Incidentally, while CA is an at-will state (and I'm aware of what that entails), I feel that this decision and the rationale provided lack merit. What recourse, if any, do I have to legally challenge this decision? Am I simply out of luck? Or are there options I can explore further? Thank you in advance.
