I went on three rounds of interviews for this positions. And finally I was hired. Then I went to work and there were millennials with blue hair, piercing, IPODS. I spent two months at the company and was let go because of "bad corporate fit". Now I want 2 be compensated. Do I have a case to sue?

No. You had a chance to do due diligence as well.

So why didn't you dye your nose blue and pierce your hair?

I was railroaded out of a fairly large company in the late '90s for not sharing the company work ethic - which, since the staff was 90% college students who had never left the university town, meant reveling in ten-hour days (since the rest of their lives was 500 feet away). As someone who ran a department, had a family and lived 35 miles away, my 8+ hour days plus extra time on projects was considered slacker.

Nope, couldn't do squat then, either.

You fit in with whiney millennials sounds like. Sure that's why they let you go?

Nobody owes you a job. It works out or it doesn't.

They could let you just because, and you would have no case. The same way you are free to quit at will they can terminate your employment at will.

as soon as I saw "I was a victim" I chuckled. Toughen up kid, you weren't a good fit by your own admission. Learn from it. Know what you're getting into before you accept a position.

You could sue for hair color discrimination.

Branal, "bad corporate fit" is a euphemism for "not a good worker".

It sounds like you don't know why you were fired. You certainly weren't fired because the other employees had piercings and dyed hair.

I would suggest you go into HR and ask what you should put on your resume - get help with wording. And ASK what happened - what the problem was if you actually don't know.
