I was recently let go from job as a part-time instructor. I was hired in May 2007, and for the second time in three years I was told I was not qualified. I have the same credentials that I had when I was initially hired. Iím qualified, then not qualified. Qualified, not qualified. I believe that I have been treated unfairly.
Do I have grounds for legal action?

Under New York law, with very few exceptions, an employee has the right to accept a job for any reason, and that employee has the right to leave that job for any reason. While this is wonderful for New York employees, it does have a downside: the employers in New York have the equivalent of that same right. The employer can let an employee go at any time for any reason. They have the right to hire, lay off and fire at will.
