Is it illegal for my employer to offer my job position to another employee if I'm still working there?
Question Details: My employer has been discussing and offering my job position to another employee with the idea that they will fire me even though I have not been informed of this nor have I really been given a reason to why I would be fired. Messages via text were sent to the employee offering my job position to them even though I'm currently working said position. Is that legal?
While unfortunate, this is perfectly legal. That is unless such an action violates the terms of an employment contract or union agreement. The fact is that a company can set the conditions of employment much as it sees fit (absent some form of leally actionable discrimination).
