Limitations on At-Will Employment


Employers do not have the right to discriminate against an employee illegally or to violate state or federal laws, such as those controlling wages and hours. Most state discrimination laws are quite broad. In addition to protecting against the traditional forms of discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin and age, many also protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation, physical and mental disability, marital status and receiving public funds. Separate state laws protect workers from being fired or demoted for taking advantage of laws protecting workers from discrimination and unsafe workplace practices. And there are a number of other more complex reasons that may make it illegal for an employer to fire you -- all boiling down to the fact that an employer must deal with you fairly and honestly.
