Unfortunately, unless you have an employment contract, there is probably nothing you can do legally. (You can always speak with HR or upper management and try to convince them your supervisor is wrong, of course.) That's because without a contract, you are an employee at will and may therefore be terminated at any time, for any reason, including reasons based on incorrect or even false information.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
