After and since then, every American court has ruled that American employees are "at-will" jobs. That said, there are still some rules that (employers) must follow for full-time full-time employees.

Yes, unless you belong to a strong union. Employment in the US is largely "at will," meaning you can be fired for any reason. Many companies have policies that require managers to adhere to a performance appraisal process that measures employees and allows them to improve their areas of weakness.

When you work in the US, you may not get fired, but you are gone. They finish their job description. Have you gone. However, they can hire someone else the next day.

To directly fire someone, you can fire them directly and you can file for unemployment. If the company wants to avoid the financial impact of unemployment insurance, it will leave a paper trail. Three strikes and you're out. If someone is digging, there are always 3 things that can be found to provide a basis for firing someone.
