Right to work states
You can quit without notice if you want, but they can fire you for whatever reason and not tell you

@Booteefool

It's not.

Look up "at-will" employment. They can fire you for whatever reason they want, as long as it's not discrimination.

That's what you get for killing off all your unions, ameriburgers

I just applied for a job at Publix (would be my first job) and it said in one of the agreements that they can fire you without notice for no reason at all. Is this legal?

Yes

@Nojokur
yep, but it also means you don't have to give them 2 weeks notice and can just call up one morning and say you're not coming to work (or just don't show up and don't answer their calls) not much of a deal if you ask me though

@Crazy_Nice
So if that wasn't in the agreement then just quitting on the spot would be illegal? Or just frowned upon?

@cum2soon
not illegal, but most non at-will employment companies have stipulations that if you quit without notice your vacation pay and bonuses are forfeit.

Enjoy never getting hired because companies know that they will run into problems if they ever want to lay you off. (See: France)

Yes they can but this is the result of business owners lobbying government to pass laws in their favor. The US/UK are known for this behavior because their populace is filled with a bunch of uneducated apes. Ironically the military in these two countries have better labor laws than the the populace do.

Do they also have to tell everyone they don't hire why?

Why should they have to?

Uh when you fire someone you should give a reason instead of "xD i decided to hehehee" so the person at least knows and can keep it in mind for next time or at least have an idea of what he did wrong.

At least help a man in the long run by explaining what he did wrong.

No, how can you possibly know?

There's any number of reasons.
You're a bad employee
They wanted to make room for a manager's son or something
They wanted to downsize
Business is slow

I got fired from a dishwashing job in the middle of a shift basically because I sucked at my job lol. Afterwards I cried and felt worthless, but eventually I learned from the expirience and got a comfy office job.

Crying over a min wage dishwashing job

Cmon man, are you at least a girl? Minimum wage jobs are a plenty, you can get fired and find a replacement job in the same hour, they're fuckin everywhere

@Soft_member
Well I was 18, it was my second job and I cried because I thought that if I couldn't hold a dishwashing job then I'd be an unemployed loser for literally the rest of my life. I thought I'd never recover, especially because at the time I was getting my jobs by walking in and asking for a job at dozens of restaraunts and I hated it. Turns out I like cooking at home but despise working in the food service industry.

you're confusing "right to work" (i.e. no mandatory unions) with "at will" (fire/quite without cause)
