You do understand that companies cannot fire someone just willy-nilly? You still need an "official" reason to let someone go.
Patently false in the US, unless you live in Montana (the only state that is not "at-will").
It is completely legal (and happens everyday) to fire someone for no reason, or a bad reason.
BUT, what you do not understand, is that those reasons are overturned when the employee decides to fight back and it ends up in court.
And then again, companies do not fire willy-nilly since it ends up costing them as recruiting and training a replacement is not cheap.
You still don’t get it,if they are not unionized and the company acted legally what are they going to sue and win?
Terminated employees don’t have the money to take on a company. A company can fire you for no reason as long as the company follows the law. It’s happened at Delta numerous times.
