Do I have a right to written notification of termination from a job

Recommended Posts

I was recently terminated from a job. The reason stated was "It's just not working out." I asked the employer for a written statement as to why I am being dismissed. He said, "It's just not working out. That's all it would say." I explained that I needed the letter to get assistance while looking for a job. He said, "I don't have to write a letter." I spoke with the foodstamp office who informed me that I needed a letter from my former employer stating the last day I worked. I called the employer and asked again, stating what I had found. Again he said, "I don't have to write a letter." So, my question is does he have to write a letter and how do I compel him to do so?

No, in West Virginia (and in most other states - there are just a few exceptions) he has no legal obligation to give you anything in writing about your termination. 


How large is your employer? I have a possible alternate thought for you.
