It's not necessarily illegal, but definitely unethical not to mention extremely immature of the boss. This happened to my dads wife, but she knew what her boss was up to & documented everything & when they finally fired her, she took them to court & was showed them what her boss had been doing to her & got her job back & her old boss got demoted
Unfortunately for you op NY has an employment at will law which means your boss can fire you for no reason at all. There are exceptions but you would have to prove you were discriminated against for one of the reasons the law protects (race, age, gender, etc.) fyl op, but don't retaliate, that would be illegal.
Too bad in most states it's borderline illegal to fire someone that way. Look at your company handbook. If it's a small owned business ur fucked tho.
Right to work states they can do what they want. But I don't think ny is. I had to start dealing with that crap as I kept moving south. Op sorry to hear that you ate going through that. But it may turn into a good thing. Sometimes getting pushed out of a crappy place to work is the best thing because most people will suck it up and stay miserable for the paycheck. Good luck finding something that you enjoy in a place that has a good environment quickly.
that suse sucks but the way he said it is enough for some legal issues so go get a lawyer and FHL karma is a bitch
you didn't want to work there any way, with an asshole for a boss. If you have evidence of what he was doing, your ultimate revenge might be to send a strongly worded letter to his boss, or to bring a suit of some sort. (Wrongful termination, unless you live in a 'Right to work' state)
There's not many jobs that I would like well enough to put up with an illiterate boss
Hey! He's not illiterate; he used "ure" instead of "ur". That's better than most texts I've seen. That sucks, OP. If he'sbeen trying to get you fired, he probably got approval from higher-ups to let you go but it may not excuse the text. Look into it while you search for a better situation.
