    An employer doesn't need to threaten an employee with termination, unless she or he enjoys pouring salt into open, bleeding wounds.

    I suppose some people do enjoy being cruel.

    Anyway, an employer can choose to terminate any employee without warning, without explanation, or because she or he enjoys hurting those under them.

    Even an employment contract won't keep you employed, although it could keep the money flowing.

    So, what has happened that your job is being threatened? How much time have you missed? Has the quality of your work suffered? Have their been complaints about you? What's going on?

    Do you & your employer qualify for FMLA? We don't have much information here - more details would be helpful.
