There may be nothing that you can do about this. That is unless you had a union agreement or employment contract that prohibted your firing under the circumstances. Also, your treatment must not have been due to some form of legally actionable idscrimintion (which you did nindicate). Otherwise, the fact is that most employment is "at will". This means that a worker can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice. Bottom line, a company can set the conditions of employemt much as it sees fit or deems appropriate.
