With very few exceptions, an employer can terminate an employee’s employment at any time. The only requirement is that the employer must give reasonable notice in advance of termination or pay severance in place of giving working notice. The only exceptions here is that an employer can not terminate employment for an improper purpose like discrimination – but other than that, employers can terminate employees as long as they give notice.

So, an employer can choose to terminate you at any time unless you can show it is being done for a discriminatory purpose or you are protected by a union collective agreement.
