Check your contract to see what the terms of termination are. If can terminate with eg one months’ notice or something. If so, nothing you can do. Anyway, no point suing for maybe a few thousand dollars and burning bridges.

There are no terms for termination or anything of that sort. I have asked some of my friends and most people's TCs don't have such a clause also. Will be getting some legal advice next week to see if I can sue. But guess I'll start applying to other firms in the meantime.

What's the problem with me taking legal advice for it? I know someone mentioned it's not worth it for just a few thousand dollars but it's more than just the money for me. I'm just disgruntled that firms do these things and bully us students or fresh grads and get away with it. I've heard it happening to other people also so it's about time someone does something about it no?

Lol are you serious? This is just never ever done unless you screwed up damn badly (like if you were caught doing something illegal). If this is true, please let us know the firm in question --> as a PSA to everyone to avoid the firm.

Anyway, if you remember your contract law, you can't compel people to work (or to continue hiring you) in employment contracts. At best you can get damages but you got to prove losses, gonna be very minimal (especially if you find an equivalent TC). The better thing to do would be to blast their reputation online, instead of wasting thousands in legal fees, and ending up with like a minimal (or even zero) compensation. And you better check your TC to see if there is a "termination for xxx reasons" clause.
