The article comments on the article "The Evolution of Unjust-Dismissal Legislation in the United States," by Alan B. Krueger. This article cites the claim of Krueger, wherein he said that employer groups in some states actually support and sponsor unjust-dismissal laws. Moreover, the differences between the original bill and the amended bill are enumerated in this paper. In addition, it criticizes Krueger for concluding that employers and employer organizations have generally supported or sponsored unjust-dismissal legislation.
