You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
Absent a contract with delineated rights and liabilities regarding both parties, I am very comfortable with the standard that termination can be for any reason or no reason as long as it is not an illegal reason. Generally, a person is given the amount of time where in between paychecks before termination becomes effective. To have any other system would be to erode the free enterprise system and have a chilling effect on small business ownership. Should an employee feel they were wrongfully terminated they are left to their remedies.
I would agree that employers should be required to give a reason. Problem is, they are scared of lawsuits and will not give the correct reason.
To force employers to give a reason under current law is pointless. I do think most employers, will at least tell the reason indirectly.
