My brain automatically skips the really dumb things that people have been fired for in the past, things to do with protected class...

And I mean no disrespect to your vocation - I assume you are an attorney. I'm reasonable enough to know that the law is *very* complicated.
Yes the law is "very" complicated, but the reality is that a person can be fired "for no reason".

I am not an attorney, but I am very experienced with reality in the workplace.

If a company wants to terminate a person all they have to do is claim that a position has been eliminated and their service is no longer required.

This may be against the law, but it has been done thousands of times and the person has no recourse other than sue the company.

Probably less than 1% of wrongful termination suits are won by the plaintive.
