Did this action violate the terms of an employment contract or union agreement? Was your treatment due to some form of leglly actionable discrimina tion? If not, then it was perfectly permissable under the law. The fact is that as an "at will" employee, your company was entitled to set the conditions of the workplace as it saw fit. This included who to hire and who to fire (or lay off).
