The legal doctrine of “at-will employment” allows employers  to terminate employment at any time for any reason, so long as the termination decision is not discriminatory or in retaliation for exercising protected rights. In FY 2018 the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) resolved 90,558 charges of discrimination and secured $505 million for victims in private sector, state and local government, and federal workplaces. To prevent these costly claims from occurring, attorneys specifically recommend publishing an at-will employment policy to ensure that employees understand the terms and conditions of employment.

Over 16 million civil lawsuits are filed annually in the U.S., many of which involve claims of workplace discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful discharge brought about by disgruntled former employees.  One third of all employment-related lawsuits involve allegations of  wrongful termination (i.e. the decision to terminate was  based on an unlawful or discriminatory factor). According to recent studies, companies lose over 60 percent of all wrongful termination lawsuits, and the average jury award in these lawsuits is $600,000.

To help employers communicate and/or reinforce an at-will employment policy, Personnel Concepts has introduced an At-Will Employment Poster. This 11” x 17” poster notifies employees that employment can be terminated by either party at any time for any reason. It also includes a legal definition of at-will employment, exceptions, anti-retaliation statement, and information on progressive discipline procedures. Publicizing an at-will employment policy with this exclusive poster can be effective in reducing the likelihood of a wrongful termination claim.
