Only one state is “just cause”. LA and most everywhere else is at-will, where you can fire/layoff someone for ANYTHING but race, sex, religion, etc …

@BHB0526:  That is insanely awful. Your boss is a serious jackass…

Unfortunately, I agree with you that since you live in an “at-will” state, you don’t really have any legal recourse. On the plus side, this means that you can just start looking for a job right away, instead of trying to put together a case. 

You can file for unemployment as soon as you aren’t working, even if you collect a severance, and you definitely should. Here, you have to file a “waiting week” where you don’t get paid, and then your benefits start.

And good luck! I really hope you both find something soon.

I’m so so sorry this happened to you! If only you lived near me we could be job-hunting buddies. I’m a firm believer that everything works out in the end, so I’m hoping you find something else soon. In the meantime, milk that boss for all that he can do for you, you deserve that and more for being treated so poorly!

@Scar_cats_tic:  1871 is a 50K sqft digital startup coworking space so I bet the answer is yes even though I don’t know about that particular event!
