What is At Will Employment?
All states have adopted “at-will” employment to some degree, which allows employees to quit their jobs at any time without advanced notice. At will employment also allows an employer to fire or lay off an employee at any time without needing to give a reason. Employers will typically ask employees to sign contracts that enforces the terms of at will employment. There are some exceptions to the contracts as they help to protect the company from losing valuable information and protects an employee from having their personal information shared.
