Reading, PA asked in Employment Law for Pennsylvania

Q: This is an employment question in Pennsylavania. Can an employer legally review you for a job you didnt know you had

I have worked for my employer for 2 years. I finally received a review, up to this point I thought I was doing a good a job, never reprimanded or told otherwise. During the review my supervisor said they know it's a harsh review because they never explained by job and my job expectations. I never knew i was considered a level 2 IT technician. During the interview they even admitted they going to post the job expectations later that day or the next. They were going to bring me in for training for this position, since we all work remotely. I did come in for a day of training, but the supervisor was too busy to go over anything. I have ha a subsequent review, essentially the same as the previous one. I feel as though I've been set up to fail. I am only holding onto this job so i can apply for a mortgage in the next year, so i need it for now. Beyond being unethical, is this actually illegal?

A: They can be as sloppy as they can, but there is no illegality. Unless you have a written contract of employment, you serve at will. You have no property right nor contract right in your job.
