At Will termination, due to requesting additional training.

Will try to be brief. I was terminated for asking for more training. I was hired with no previous experience, was told it would take 1 1/2 months to be ready, after 13 days I was given duties that I believed I was not ready to take, did not refuse them, but asked for training, since no proper on was given. I was terminated next day with an At Will letter. Anything ilegal there?

At Will Termination,due to requesting additional training.

You may have a breach of employment contract claim based on employer's failure to provide the training that they promised you. However, you may have difficulty securing representation by an attorney unless your damages are likely to be $300,000 plus.
