    If and when you are fired immediately apply for Unemployment. If the firing is as arbitrary as you are making it sound you should be able to collect benefits provided you have paid in enought to the system.

      Well, the first thing you can do in the future is use proper punctuation and sentence structure. We aren't texting here. Fortunately, your post was so short that I think I can figure out what your question is.

      "Wrongful termination" is a legal term that has to do with an employee being fired for a reason for which a law exists prohibiting discharge for that reason (such as age, race, gender, etc,) or discharge because an employee has reported a possible violation of some law to the appropriate regulatory agency (such as filing a wage and hour claim or reporting a possible safety violation to OSHA). Just because a discharge may be seen as "unfair" does not necessarily mean it is "wrongful".

      For UI purposes, there are certain circumstances that are referred to as "disqualifying". If you are fired for one of those reasons, you would not get UI benefits. Other than that or you actually quitting, the UI laws are tilted towards the discharged worker.

      Other than that, without a bona fide employment contract or CBA, you can legally be fired if the employer doesn't like the color of your socks. See here:

        If you don't have a union contract, unfortunately an employer can fire anybody they want to for any reason. SORRY! And depending on what state you live in determines your unemployment laws.

          That's what I said 5 days ago.
