A: An employer does not have to give a reason for firing. For employees not under an employment contract, an employer can fire for any reason so long as it is not illegal/discriminatory. If you believe you were fired for an illegal reason then you might want to consult with a lawyer.

As a practical matter one might want to start looking for a new position and/or explore unemployment benefits which may or may not be available depending on the circumstances.
