I Just Gave My Employer Two Weeks' Notice And S/He Fired Me. What Can I Do?

Pennsylvania is an 'AT WILL' State thus an employer does not need to give a reason to fire an employee under Pennsylvania Labor Law. Therefore, s/he has not violated any Wage and Hour law. However, you may wish to check with an attorney to see whether or not you can file a civil lawsuit against your employer for wrongful discharge. Also, if you feel you were discriminated against because of race, creed, color, age, religion, sex, or similar reason, you may wish to contact the Human Relations Commission at 1­717­787­9780.
