"[This book is an] analysis of the employment at will doctrine, as well as the unique exceptions that various states have applied. This treatise uses a uniform topic structure to provide a comparative view across states, as well as to allow for research on an individual state. This format is extremely helpful for lawyers with a multi-jurisdictional practice, and for those seeking persuasive authority to expand or limit the law in their own state. Each state chapter addresses: the creation of enforceable employment agreements through employee handbooks, written personnel policies, and oral assurances; common law claims for wrongful discharge; the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing; the public policy exception to the doctrine of employment at will; the burden of proof necessary to sustain a claim of wrongful discharge; what constitutes ''just cause'' for purposes of termination; the effect of disclaimers on the employment at will relationship; potential damages in a wrongful discharge claim; related tort claims arising out of the employment relationship, including fraud, intentional interference with a contract, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and invasion of privacy; and state statutes prohibiting termination based on classifications."--
