Can you still sue for discrimination if you are fired with no reason given during the probation period?

    You can but your right severely limited during probation. Good Luck. 

    I was fired after 2 years for a seizure, boss Ed Jacobson lied  I would have to bring in witnesses, though.  and he'd fire them, too. And I Might get my job back BUT I didn't want it. He'd just find Another reason to fire me, too. Even though CA state law forbade  his first action.

    Sorry, but you won't be able to win that one.  Your employer decided you weren't a good fit during your probation period

    Of course you can sue.  In order to win you must PROVE discrimination.

      Actually, they have to prove the firing was NOT illegal discrimination, if that is to be their defense.

    Sure, if you can prove discrimination, which you won't likely be able to.

      The employer has the burden of proving a valid non-discriminatory motive.

    That is why it is called a probationary period it gives the employer a chance to see if it is going to work out or not, and in your case I guess it didn't

    And since you didn't go into the discrimination part of your question, I am betting you are wanting  to use that excuse for you being fired instead of owning up to the fact you were not worth the employers time to keep you on the payroll.

    Employers do not fire valuable employees who come to work, do their job as shown, not late, and do quality work, I am betting you failed in at least 2 of the mentioned what makes a good employee.

    You have no lawsuit, and only a money grubbing lawyer would take this case and only after you pay him his fees up front and are willing to be milked out of a lot more, because this is a non winnable case.

    Good luck in your next job search

    Nope and most employers cover their *sses by having an 'at will' clause on the application.

    An 'at will' clause allows an employer to fire an employee at anytime for any reason! Doesn't matter how long you worked for them!

      You can be fired for any number of illegal reasons, giving you the right to sue them, but only for money, not for getting your job back.

    You can sue anyone for anything............ suing costs money and if you do not have proof of 'discrimination' you are wasting your time......... bearing in mind if they were discrimitory they would not have employed you in the first place

    To win you would need evidence of illegal discrimination.

      You only need enough to allow a judge or jury to infer that discrimination took place. Then the employer has the burden of proving a non-discriminatory motive for the firing.
