Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions

Is there any recourse for a construction employee who gets terminated and asked to leave that same day without any severance or transition pay or insurance assistance?

Add Answer
This would depend upon the State employment laws you work in. Each is different but many states allow for terminatation without cause and unless there is a written agreement about severance or extended benefits beyond termination then the employee has not recourse. 

However an employee can always hire a labor attorney and challenge the termination, demanding some form of assistance. Most employers would rather settle such matters outside the courtroom.
