What to do about a copyright and wrongful termination?

Question Details: I presented a programmatic process I designed to a business and was hired to oversee it and implement it. I recently copyrighted it, on the basis I wrote it prior to this company extending an offer. I now feel that I am about to be terminated, despite no prior warning or even verbal reprimand. Earlier, I was asked to hire my boss self-described best friend and feel my boss is moving toward firing me and replacing me with this person. The program has succeeded in growing business. Would this be considered wrongful termination? Am I correct in assuming sole authorship copyright of this program as intellectual property, as I developed it prior to hire?
