  • 10yrs no record of "issues" that I was fired for... Oregon

    Been with the same company for just short of 10 years. I was a partner within the company...have always had GLOWING evaluations, managed an entire facility and several employees. Out of the blue, but after months of "structural changes" within the company, I'm handed a letter with fabricated reasons to why I am being terminated. I asked for documentation, I asked why wasn't I informed of these issues and allegations. Never once did anyone have any type of conversation or sit down with me, to discuss any problems I may be having with job performance or otherwise. I actually was awarded the Presidents Award 2 years ago!!! How do I go from that to this?? This is wrong.

    In at-will employment you can be terminated at any time for any reason except a reason prohibited by law (ie age, religion, gender) ... or unless you have a binding employment contract to the contrary.

    You didn't have to be informed of performance issues (or otherwise) prior to termination unless you had a binding contract requiring "warnings" before termination.

    Apply for unemployment ins.
