This really depends on your situation. While some terminations may be perfectly legitimate, many other terminations may violate the law. Acting quickly, while you still employed, may save your job, or at least prepare the ground for a future legal action. In any event, try to collect all documents such as policies, evaluations, write-ups, pay stubs, etc. while you are still employed.
This is not a simple question. You are in the best position to know what your employer/boss may do if you speak up. In general, you should know that if your employer terminates you for formally complaining about employment-related violation, the employer may be liable for retaliation, as well as for the underlying violation.
A: Technically, this is a violation of the law. Moreover, if your employer retaliates against you for bringing a legal action, or even complaining, that would be illegal. However, if your situation is acceptable, we discourage our clients from unnecessary litigation.
