"At will" doesn't cover something like that. It'll be your word against his, but even just the first steps of a lawsuit should persuade him to settle or give you a delayed severance check. You should make sure not to give him any alone time with dear old Mom.

The position can be eliminated for say, 12 months, with the company claiming layoffs or a change in business needs. There is a case here but very difficult to prove. PS, I am not an attorney but I play one on tv.

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!
