The vast majority of all employment is what is known as “at-will.”  As a general rule, an at-will employee may be terminated at any time for any reason, or no reason at all.  There are, however, a breadth of statutory and common law exceptions to the at-will doctrine.  For lawyers new to the field of employment law, the ability to identify and evaluate the many potential claims and defenses in a wrongful termination case is an essential skillset.  This program will provide an overview of the exceptions to the at-will doctrine, with particular focus on the public policy exceptions recognized under common law.
