For the most part, employers offer at-will employment. This type of employment
gives employers the freedom to fire employees for any legal reason, at
any time. There are some circumstances, however, when a person is not
considered an at-will employee. To know if your employment is at will,
you need to take a look at your contract.
Some contractual agreements that show you are not an at-will employee include:
- A term is set for the amount of time you will be employed
- A list of limited circumstances under which you can be fired
- Penalties for ending the contract early
Other Contractual Violations
Another form of contractual violation is when the employer acts against
an implied contract. Implied contracts, while not signed by the employer
or the employee, are policy and procedure documents that reasonably apply
to the employee.
Some examples of implied contract breaches:
- An employer does not give the employee proper notice as outlined in their
- An employer fires an employee in a way that differs from their standard
practice or their written procedures
