So, you terminated someone without cause, can you ever tell them why?

My partner had to let someone go from their job, and they were terminated without cause. This means they can't give explicit reasons for the termination. The person was not able to see their impending dismissal, despite repeated efforts by management to the rectify the situation. So, is it ever possible to reach out post-dismissal and make clear the reasons without setting yourself up for legal problems? [more inside]

Was I fired with cause or not?

I was "let go" from work the other day - I had already been on probation due to a bad review. The review was full of incorrect statements, which I had proof of but I didn't put up a fuss. I was given requirements to fulfill to show improvement. I met those times 3. They let me go anyway. I said that I had gone way farther even than I was asked to in the requirements, so why are you letting me go? The reason was "The decision has been made." I want to know, is this considered with cause, and can I get unemployment? BTW this is in Mass. [more inside]

Cause vs Effect

Are our feelings/emotions (love, anger, lust, sadness, etc.) a result of chemical reactions that take place in our body? Or do chemical reactions occur as a result of our emotional state? What comes first?
