Can I be fired for speaking English?
Question Details: I speak only fluent English. I was hired almost 4 months ago as manager at a European market, and have been told I am doing very well. Today at closing, my boss called me and says I am being "let go" because too many of her Russian customers are complaining that they cannot understand me. I have a 3 year old daughter and my husband recently had a random seizure, making him unable to work. Without this job we could very well become homeless because my husband's job loss has already affected us very painfully.
