Most domestic workers are “at will” employees. This means that the worker can generally be fired for any reason or for no reason at all. Your employer does not have to give you notice before firing you.
However, it is illegal for an employer to fire or threaten to fire a worker for exercising her workplace rights, such as complaining about violations to minimum wage or overtime, or filing a claim for unpaid wages. It is also illegal for an employer to fire or threaten to fire a worker for complaining about sexual harassment.
It is illegal for an employer to call or threaten to call immigration or the police on a worker for exercising her workplace rights. There are serious penalties if an employer threatens to call or calls immigration of the police in retaliation for the worker enforcing her workplace rights.
