Barring civil service tenure, a collective bargaining agreement, or a private term of employment contract, usually yes. Unless they were retaliating against you for requesting FMLA, an accommodation under the ADA, regarded or perceived you as disabled, regarded you as too old by comments or how they treat workers over 40, and a few other possible scenarios.

It's probably a sign that you should very confidentially look for a new job, then once you secure one, hopefully in writing, provide your 2 week notice and move on. Do not say bad things about your employer or risk breaching your duty of loyalty to your employer. Good luck!
