It's not legal to terminate based on sex, age, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or any other protected right in any state. Right to work states can terminate at any time for any reason, but again not for a protected reason.

At will and right to work aren't interchangeable terms. At will means you can be terminated without cause. Right to work means you can work wherever will hire you, regardless of whether or not you join a union. The two laws are in no way related.

the distinction is still pretty important to have in this context. Say in the case of a transgender man, termination based on sex would be based on him being biologically female whereas termination based on gender would be because he identifies as male.

I'm not certain why #50 got down voted; he's absolutely right. Federal law, specifically ADEA, only protects workers over the age of 40.

I doubt he/she will "win big" from a stall at a flower market as an individual. The big bucks come from class suits.

By win big, I mean OP will get unpaid wages, will get compensated for damage, it has some value to it all and could mean pay until op finds another job... In fact when OP files for unemployment and tells them this reason was given for termination they will give unemployment, but will also forward it as an illegal complaint.

It's bad enough when you get fired when you're doing your best, but it goes from mere anger to livid rage when the 'reason' they give for terminating you is a bold-faced lie. Sorry for your loss OP.
