They can fire you for any reason they like, or for no reason at all.

Not fully true. They always have to give a reason upon request - OR 335 Abs 2.

Depending on reason given, there may be a case for indemnification. Very unlikely though as most companies knows how to navigate this.
Furthermore, the employer must follow the correct procedures. In the OP's case, the legally mandated notice period (7 days) for termination of current contract, followed by a new contract at the lower rate. Failure to do this can make the employer liable for contract breach.

Most companies know how to do this, but not all managers do.
