ISSN or ISBN
This article examines the origins and evolution of employment-at-will, investigates judicially created at-will exceptions and statutory limitations today, and suggests that employment-at-will is slowly evolving into a just cause standard. The authors recommend an employment policy that both adheres to the law and promotes an atmosphere of fair employment practices that coincide with American values of fair play.
