When being Let Go does the employer have to legall tell you why?

When an employer lets an employee go, are they legally suppose to give a reason in writing?



Hi Brandon,

There might be a few states like Missouri .. that require employers, through labor law, to issue a letter naming the reason for separation.

These laws are called "service letter laws" .. if I'm not mistaken.

As far as I know, California is NOT one of the "few states". But I do believe CA has some written requirements if the letting go is a part of a lay off.
