questions & answers

Question: Is my employer required to give me confirmation in writing of my termination at the time of firing?

Answer: According to the State Bar of Arizona "The majority of private-sector workers in Arizona are employees “at-will.” Employment on an “at-will” basis means the employment is not covered by a written contract or bargaining agreement, and the employment relationship may be ended (i) for any reason not prohibited by law or for no reason, (ii) at any time, (iii) by either the employee or the employer, and (iv) with or without cause." There is more information on their website at http://www.azbar.org/workingwithlawyers/topics/yourrightsasanemployee. You may also want to contact an attorney to see what your rights are regarding the firing.
