At Will Employment and Wrongful Termination

Printer-friendly version
Time:9am - 12pm
Location:EANJ Training Room, Livingston

The doctrine of "employment-at-will" holds that in the absence of any employment contract for a specified duration an individual's employment can be terminated, without liability, at the will of his employer - with or without cause, with or without notice. However, important exceptions to the rule make up the bulk of wrongful termination. This freedom to terminate subject to the limitations imposed by the many federal and State statutes which proscribe discharges for various reasons (such as the laws against employment discrimination) and which are described elsewhere in this publication. In addition, courts have recognized and applied one or more exceptions to the employment-at-will doctrine in upholding lawsuits for wrongful discharge. The exceptions which New Jersey courts currently recognize will be covered in this Seminar,  including:

1.  Express and Implied Contract Violations;
2.  Public Policy and Whistleblowing;
3.  Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing;
4.  Interference with Contractual Relations;
5.  Misrepresentation and Fraud; and
6.  Infliction of Emotional Distress
