Today's legal News
In the United States, the majority of workers are employed at-will, meaning an employee may leave a job at any time and an employer can fire an employee for almost any reason, or no reason at all. While the autonomy of employers and workers is protected in the at-will system, employment laws provide protections to ensure that employees are treated with a reasonable degree of fairness. Antidiscrimination laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, religion, national origin and disability status. Wage and hour and workplace safety laws ensure that workers are paid a fair wage and that they are reasonably safe in the workplace.
