A: Yes this is legal. You are considered to be employed on an at will basis unless you have an agreement to the contrary with your employer about that status. The employer of an at will employee can terminate the employee at any time and for any reason or even for no reason at all. In fact, they can terminate you for an unfair reason, or a reason that they caused themselves.

Good luck to you.
