What is employment at will?

Date: 10/18/2006 | Category: Business | Author: Diana Heeb Bivona

Employment at will means that you can terminate an employee at any time, and for any reason – or no reason at all. However, note that this does not mean as an employer that you can discriminate against an employee and fire them based on race, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. Federal and state laws forbid such actions and will impose stiff penalities against employer’s who are proven to have violated the law.
If you are following an employment at will policy, be sure to make it clear to your employees when hiring them. Many employers also find in helpful to have their employees sign off on some type of offer letter indicating they understand and agree to the fact that they will be an at will employee. Additionally, if you have an employee handbook, make sure the relationship is clearly spelled out for all employees to reference.
