patermann - in the US, some states have something called a "no fault" policy.
That means that an employer can fire an employee for any reason or no reason at any time with as little notice as they care to give.
But, don't worry, they give the worker the same power to quit at any time for any reason.
Hm.. that does seem a little bit lopsided, but that's the good ol' US for you.
I don't think all states do this, but the last two I've lived in do.
