Assuming you are non-union what does your contract say? If you have no contract are you "at will"? If so how easy would it be to get another job were you terminated for no reason? At will employment means either side is free to leave or fire without cause.

Review your performance evaluation. If none and you want to stay employed no break might be something to consider regardless of what the law says. You might get your break and be fired for no reason a few weeks later.
