    For practitioners in the labor and employment field in the United States, the doctrine of Employment at Will is recognized as the foundation of all employment relationships. Generally, it stands for the proposition that an employer can discharge an employee for any good reason, and bad reason or no reason at all. However, over the years this doctrine has been eroded through federal, state and local legislative and regulatory enactments as well as court decisions relying on common law. Each state of this nation has developed its own recognized exceptions to this doctrine and associated claims.

     This treatise is an invaluable resource for representatives from all the different constituencies, as it summarizes the status of case law and legislation exceptions to the employment law doctrine for each state. The authors and editors have broken down these exceptions and related issues in topics for the ease of research and to enable the reader to become well versed in the current legislation and judicial interpretation.

    Now more than ever it is important for practitioners to have this resource as companies have multiple locations and employ remote workers in states other than where their physical offices are located. In addition, the exceptions to employment at will and related topics are constantly evolving and case law recognizing what courts in other states are doing outside of your jurisdiction can be instructive and, at times, used as persuasive authority.

    This book is an outgrowth of the annual report of the Employment-At-Will Subcommittee of the Employment Rights and Responsibilities Committee of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law.
