Repeal At-Will Employment Doctrine: All workers should have due process!
This petition had 89 supporters
At-Will Rule, which became common law in the United States, is a rule regarding employment relationships of an indefinite duration which emerged in the late nineteenth century as a direct result of Horace G. Wood's treatise on master-servant relationships that was published in 1877. See: History of At-Will Employment Law in the USA.
This type of legislation by our government causes significant suffering in our economy, and is the primary if not sole cause of so much unemployment. In more than 30 states in this country employees are divided into a class called "at-will employees". An at-will employee in the USA can be terminated at any time, and for any reason -- and an employer is not obligated to give any type of advanced notice, not required to give any type of severance pay. Many states are not even required to adopt the at-will exceptions and other statutory restrictions against unconstitutional termination and the courts will generally not intervene to protect the ex-employee from allegedly unfair treatment by the employer.
