A Word on At-Will Employment

 
 At Will Termination 
 

“At Will” might not mean what your Employer wants you to think it does

At will means that an employee or an employer can end their relationship with or without cause at any time as long as there is no illegal reason. So, even if you are an “at will” employee if your Employer terminates you because of:

• Your race, sex, gender, age, disability, national origin, religion, pregnancy, caregiving responsibilities, or sexual orientation…
• Complaining about or objecting to discrimination…
• Taking FMLA or other time off of work for caregiving responsibilities…
• Asking to be paid your wages or for overtime…

… you could still have a claim against your employer!
