That is one of the most annoying things about america, they literally don't give a shit about employees, doing that in the UK is 100% not allowed, america really needs to sort it out, they are one of the most developed countries in the world, yet employees don't have basic job security as they can literally be fired for anything
Most states have various exemptions to at-will, though. For example, if you live in one of the 36 states with an implied contract exception, and your employee handbook enumerates the reasons an employee can be fired (without using the words "including but not limited to"), that handbook can be considered an employment contract even if you didn't sign anything and being fired for a reason not listed can be grounds to sue.
