Wrongful Termination Archives

Are there any exceptions to the at-will employment doctrine?

New Jersey, much like other states in the country, upholds an employment-at-will doctrine. This means that employees have a right to quit their job for any reason and at any point in time. It works the other way around too. Employers in at-will states can terminate an employee without giving them any advance notice or having to explain their actions.

Union employees and wrongful termination claims

Working in a union in New Jersey comes with a lot of advantages. One of those advantages is that if the union employee is terminated from their employment, they can fight the termination with the help of a union representative.
