umm that's super illegal. you can have his ASS with a wrongful termination suit. I say put him through a monster shitstorm.
First of all, FYL. In addition, I agree that is one of those rare situations where there is potential for a lawsuit even in US states with "at will" employment. Even the threat of litigation and negative press alone might force him to settle, even if the case would not hold up in court. Then he can see what 'awkward family dinners" are like. The only way I would give him any leeway is if he actively assists you finding an equivalent position with a partner or competitor company. Disclaimer: I'm don't advocate lawsuits for every problem, but for this guy I will make an exception.
That is really messed up. At the next family gathering announce "Im becoming a stripper because my jackass boss fired me for no reason." then give him an evil stare. OR make a toast in honor of him being willing to 100% financially support you so you dont have to work anymore and can focus on other ventures. Put him on the spot!
