I am sorry this has happened to you. I was a manager working with a union contract so we had rules and regs to follow but I took a job this fall and was surprised to learn the following. When you apply next time, get the employee handbook up front and read it cover to cover, any questions.......ask the boss before you accept the job.This was not the job for you......you are destined for better things. :)
At-will employment is a doctrine of American law that defines an employment relationship in which either party can terminate the relationship with no liability if there was no express contract for a definite term governing the employment relationship. Under this legal doctrine:
"any hiring is presumed to be "at will"; that is, the employer is free to discharge individuals "for good cause, or bad cause, or no cause at all," and the employee is equally free to quit, strike, or otherwise cease work."
Great advice Puddy and Panike we wish you the best with your new job and I hope you conquer that bridge.
Hugs to you Kitt
