Are you being paid for all hours worked? That would be the only legal violation I see here. I don't see anything unlawful about your boss having you care for two people. If you are not being paid for all the hours you work, there could be an overtime or minimum wage issue here. I would reach...Read more »

The reason given was “lack of confidence to do my job”. I asked for supporting documents and was given none. I saved the company 500k in payroll alone by cross training in my department rather than hiring. Just before I was let go I saved the company 78k in annual paper costs by switching to... Read more »
Based on what you wrote, no. Employment is at will, they can fire you for most any reason, and they do not have to give you the reason.
