Employment Law FAQs
In employment law, “at-will” typically refers to the relationship between employee and employer. This means that most employees can be hired and terminated at any time (with some exceptions at the state and federal level). However, not all employees are “at-will," so careful consideration must be given to hiring, promotion, demotion, or firing decisions.
If you believe that your employee or employer is doing something unlawful, you can gather evidence with email, video, or other methods deemed admissible under a legal case. Make sure that you have a plan before it's too late, and save the evidence you need to win your case!
