Employment law covers the relationships between employers and their current, prospective, and former employees. Both federal and state laws control various aspects of the employer-employee relationship, including each side’s rights and obligations. There are also different types of relationships. This kind of relationships can be based on a contract, or they can be “at-will.” If this relationship is based on a valid contract entered into by the employer and the employee, the terms of that contract will govern the relationship. By contrast, an at-will employment arrangement can be terminated at any time, with or without reason, by either the employer (as long as the reason does not constitute illegal discrimination) or the employee.With such an array of factors to consider, it is clear why this law is such a complex area.
