if that's really the case
and i mean really the case, then you were what's known as "wrongfully terminated."
again, if your story really is the whole story, you are entitled to compensation. go over her head and report it to a superior. make sure you can document it. and call a lawyer before you do anything.
i can almost guarantee that it wasn't the case, and that there is more going on. companies can't just fire you for no reason. reasons are easy to come by, though. is the company under financial hardship? they don't need any other reason to fire you if they are, unfortunately.
and to answer the TS:
i have been let go twice. once when the recession hit and i was doing electrical work during summer and winter breaks at college. the other when my boss injured himself and had to sell his mooring service. he died about a year and a half later. he was a good friend. RIP.
now i own my business. i've fired one person in my lifetime. i don't like to do it, obviously, but there's nobody paying my bills but me, and i know what my company needs. i don't like to boast, but i do very well for a 25 year old.
