Over the years, there has been much debate over the classification of employment-at-will employees. Employment-at-will is a term that refers to the protection that is applied to the employment relationship, such that the employer or the employee has the right to terminate the employment relationship at any time. There are different modifications to employment-at-will that vary at the state level. With your classmates, please discuss the following:
- Does employment-at-will have better protections for employees or employers? Why or why not?
- Choose a state and describe its modifications to employment-at-will. Do you agree with these modifications? Why or why not?
