Q Does my employer have to give me fair notice before I get fired in Norwich, Connecticut?
Fired without notice? While that seems unfair, it is not illegal. The employent at will rule says that an employer can terminate your employment for any reason or no reason. There is no notice requirement at all. This means that you can be doing a great job, and all of a sudden your employer surprises you by telling you to leave, and don't come back at all. Of course, you will have the right to seek unemployment benefits, but the fact that you were given no advance notice of your termination is not grounds for a suit.
Remember, if you wanted to quit your job you can do that without advance notice as well.
Unfortunately, common courtesy is not always required by law.
