Employment-at-Will! Does It Protect Employers from Wrongful Termination Allegations?

Duration: 90 Minutes
You may have heard that most employment is at-will, but what does that mean? If you employ your workers "at-will", does that mean you can fire them whenever you want? Does invoking the doctrine of employment-at-will protect you from wrongful termination suits? In this webinar we will discuss the extent and limits of employment-at-will. We will also explore the statutory exceptions and contractual provisions that seem to undermine employment-at-will to give you clarity and guidance on an often misunderstood principle of employment law.

Why Should you Attend
Many employers make the mistake of assuming that because they hired an employee "at-will" that terminating that employee will be a done deal-and they often end up defending a wrongful termination claim. Other employers may hold onto employees who are not performing or who may even undermine company goals and safety, because they think that terminating them will automatically result in a multi-million dollar lawsuit. Neither of those assumptions is necessarily true! So what's an employer to do? This webinar will help you gain some insight into how to navigate your relationship with your employees, keeping employment-at-will and its exceptions in mind.
