Most employees in the U.S. are considered “at-will” employees. In a situation in which the employee works at-will, an employer has the right to fire the employee at any time without cause. “Without cause” means that the employee can be fired for any reason or no reason at all. However, employees cannot be fired for an unlawful reason.
The laws in each state can vary, but generally, there are certain factors that do not serve a proper basis for employers to fire employees if the following apply:
- Discrimination (termination based on age, disability, gender, race, religion, etc.)
- Breach of employment contract
- Public policy laws (retaliation or whistleblowing)
