A: Unless you have an employment contract that states otherwise, New Jersey is an at-will employment state, meaning you or your employer can terminate the employment relationship at any time for any reason or no reason, and no notice is required.

A: it depends. Most employment in NJ is employment at will which means you can be fired without any notice. I would need to know if you have an employment contract, if you're a member of a union, etc.
