Who Is an At-Will Employee?

Many of us have heard the term “at-will employment.”  Employment at-will refers to employees that do not have an employment contract for a stated period of time.  Some employees have a contract with their employers that state they will be employed for a specific period of time.  For example, many teachers have written contracts providing that they will be employed for the school year.  Most “contract” employees can only be fired “for a cause.”  However, most New Hampshire employees are at-will employees and do not have such an employment contract for a term.  This means that they can be fired for any reason or no reason provided it is not for an illegal or discriminatory reason.

Your employment status may be important during employment litigation.
