    By Nicole S. Healy

  • Terminating At-Will Employees
    Human Resources Online - 7/15/2014
    By Julian Pardo de Zela

    Attorney Julian Pardo de Zela authored the article “Terminating At-Will Employees.” In the article, Pardo de Zela examines the legal issues which arise from the termination of “at-will” employment relationships. In general, Pardo de Zela notes, employers have substantial flexibility to terminate at-will employees, as the “mere existence of an employment relationship does not create a legally recognized protection that employment will continue.” The article details four major exceptions when this flexibility is limited and recommends actions employers can take to protect themselves against “implied” employment contracts, which occur if an employee could reasonably conclude from an employer’s words or actions that he or she would not be terminated without cause.
