Employment lawyers always advise corporate clients to include an at-will employment statement in employee handbooks, job applications, and individual employment contracts.
But the reality for employers today is that the increasing exceptions to at-will employment almost nullify the rule.
The growing number of federal, state, and local laws that broaden the definitions of protected-class employees pose a significant threat to at-will employment.
This includes Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, the Equal Pay Act, and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.
And, among COVID-19’s many impacts, has been a vast expansion of claims of protection under the ADA and the FMLA.
Staying updated on these protected classes is crucial to your risk management/litigation avoidance program.
Join us for this program that will help you fully understand the long list of policies that protect employees from termination – and give you the tools you need to lawfully terminate employees who are in a protected class.
You’ll learn how to:
Learn the most important elements of lawful termination
Stay up to date on the latest policy changes regarding protected-class employees
Bolster your organization against employment lawsuits
