If you know you are being unfairly targeted for termination at work, what can you do to protect yourself?
Can you prove that you are being unfairly and unjustly targeted? Even if you can if you work in an at will state (most of them) there is not really much you can do.
Unfortunately, termination of the employee is usually the employer's prerogative, no matter how unfair it would seem to be. Under the doctrine of employment at will, the employer is free to discharge individuals "for good cause, or bad cause, or no cause at all".
However, your termination can be considered illegal and you can protect yourself if: you have a contract which has set a date for the end of your employment, you're being illegally discriminated on the basis of your race, color, religion, age, gender, disability, etc., or you're being retaliated on because you engaged in a protected activity.
