When it comes to employment, the general consensus is that having a job is a privilege and not a right. Along these lines, all states have adopted statutes referred to as employment at will statutes.
Though the degree to which the statutes are applied to various situations varies depending on the state, the basic concept behind the statutes is that an employee can quit a job at any time without reason and without notice.
Likewise, an employer can fire an employee at any time with or without reason. This does not mean, however, that your employer had the right to mistreat you or to terminate your employment simply on a whim.
There are many specifications to the statutes and it is important that you understand them in order to determine if your termination was wrongful and if you can seek compensation.
