Approximately six months ago I changed from a full-time position to a part-time position at my company because I got another full-time job. Both myself and my employers agreed upon staying at the company part-time, working around my new schedule. However, very recently I was fired and the only comment made in regards to reasoning in that meeting was that “Now you’ve gotten a new job and moved on to bigger and better things”. Is this allowed?
