The UK and EU have far more protections for workers than most of the US does. Most states implement an "at-will employment" standard which allows employees to be dismissed without cause and without recourse unless they can prove it was being exploited to paper over illegal discrimination or retaliation. And of course in addition to needing time and a lawyer for that, you're out of work and looking for a new job. (The flip side for workers is that we don't have to give notice if we don't feel like it, which is basically peanuts by comparison).
