A reformulation of Employment Termination: Rights and Remedies, Employment at Will: A State-by-State Survey provides a comprehensive analysis of the employment at will doctrine, as well as the many exceptions recognized by the courts. The doctrine serves as the foundation for legal analysis of the employment relationship in the United States, and nearly all states recognize it in some form—and then apply their own set of unique exceptions to it. Practitioners, both plaintiff-side and defense-side, therefore need to understand each of the applicable exceptions in the state or states of interest to them.
This treatise, the latest addition to the State-by-State Survey Series, was prepared by practitioners in each jurisdiction under the auspices of the Employment at Will Subcommittee of the Employment Rights and Responsibilities Committee of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law. It uses the same set of topics for each state to provide a comparative view across states, as well as to allow for research on an individual state. This format is extremely helpful for lawyers who practice in multiple jurisdictions, as well as for lawyers who practice primarily in a single jurisdiction, particularly when they wish to argue by analogy or example from the laws of another state.
Each state chapter provides analysis of the following topics:
Practitioners can count on this treatise to provide the most up-to-date analysis of the employment at will doctrine and its many exceptions—and its easy-to-use state-by-state format will make it a daily resource.
