    Default Re: Firing Someone

    As long as you were not fired for a reason prohibited by law (race, national origin, sex) and there is not a collective bargaining agreement in place to the contrary, an employer may fire any employee with or without reason or notice at any time.

    It is known as "at-will" employment.

    In the same way, the employee can just up and quit.
