Employment law is the body of law that governs the employee/employer relationship. Traditionally, an employment relationship could be severed by either party for any reason whatsoever or, in the alternative, for no reason at all. Such an arrangement is known as “at-will employment.”
Today, while “at-will employment” is still presumed, the employment relationship is far more complicated. There are both state and federal laws in effect that must be considered when determining the legal rights and obligations of both employees and employers, not to mention unique contractual language that may apply to the particular employment relationship at issue.
