That depends upon why you are being treated this way.

If you are being singled out BECAUSE OF your race, gender, national origin, age (over 40), religion, disability or pregnancy, you can take legal action. Likewise if it's in retaliation for your exercising a protected right (FMLA, workers comp etc.) or for reporting illegal activity to the appropriate state, federal or local agency. If it's for any other reason, including just that the new gm doesn't like you, then you don't have a legal case.

At will means that you can quit for any reason at all, and they can fire you for any reason except those above.
