If you work here you'll know that this is a "right to work" state. What this means in practice is that your employer can fire you at any time without giving you notice or a reason for dismissal. They usually moderate this a bit because you don't want to get too bad a reputation as an employer but realistically the only distinction when they fire you is whether it was 'for cause' or not. (This affects your ability to claim unemployment.)
