Fired after six years of no warnings and great reviews

Yesterday was fired from a positon held for one year with recent "A" review and 5% increase. Been with company 6 years. All started when I copied CEO on email sent to manager concerning my take on a certain work-related situation concerning workflow and employment competancy (not involving either my manager or CEO!). Always good reviews with increases, never had a verabal or written warning.

My option is said to be severance or kindly work in position for the next few weeks until I find an outside job.

Do I have grounds based on retaliation? I was also told in the "firing" that my "being from England" makes it difficult to work with"

Please help... I have never had anything like this happen.

Need facts

There is no "right" to a job in PA. Whether you have a claim depends on the real reason for firing you, ie was it because of discrimination. Do you have a contract or belong to a Union? Call if you wish to discuss.
