Unlikely. Texas is a "Right to work" state. Which means they can fire you for any reason, as long as it doesn't have anything to do with race, gender, or sexual orientation.

#83, There was absolutely nothing in the FML to suggest that the OP is a bad worker. That being said, I wouldn't be able to take you seriously even if you had a valid point because you said "hard wanker"

It's legal only in right to work states . If it was for example, California, then no because you must have a cause in California to fire someone. Also, being the case she can get unemployment benefits and depending on the state could suit and win.

#55 on the flip side, how would you feel if you were a business owner and your government told you that you had to employ someone you didn't feel was a good fit with your business, but otherwise did a decent job?

Florida is a right to work state. They can fire you for any reason at all. Where I used to work, they never even gave is breaks & when I asked if that was even legal I was told that since it is a right to work state that no they do not have to give you breaks if you are over the age of 18, which is bullshit. Op, your boss is an ass. You deserve to work for a company who's going to appreciate you!!

As a former employer (store manager for a chain supermarket) in Florida I can tell you that you HAVE to give breaks. That has nothing to do with Florida being an at will state. But I could fire people for anything that was not listed. But if I didn't give even one break in a 15 year employment and fired that person because his t-shirt was offensive then I can be sued out the ass for that missing break.

Yes it is actually. As long as the boss didn't fire the person based on gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and in some states sexual orientation, then the boss is allowed to terminate anyone's employment for no reason at all.

Every time I read FML's like this I can't help but wonder if I should say you should fight for your job back or be glad you don't work under such an asshole anymore.
