Employer's At-Will Policy

July 2010
Employer's At-Will Policy;7/1/2010, p1
An at-will policy protects you from having to defend a breach of contract lawsuit and helps you retain your legal right to fire an employee for any reason that is not illegal -- without having to prove it to a judge or jury. Use Nolo's Employer's At-Will Policy to: authorize an officer of the company to modify the at-will relationship, effectively distribute the policy to new employees, and collect signed copies of the form from employees.
