My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Oregon
These are some general questions regarding unemployment:
1) Why is At-Will employment considered consitutional when it allows an employer to disrupt the life of an employee by firing them for any reason or no reason at all?
2) Despite At-Will termination, are there cases that terminated employees win, besides discrimination or civil liberties stuff, when they can show that the employer did not give them fair warning or notification of any sort? I've been listening to Jodie-Beth Gallows "How to Legally Terminate People with Attitude Problems", and she indicates that there are cases where neglect of due process puts the case in favor of the terminated employee. Are there such instances?
3) At time of hiring with an at-will employer, is there anything the employee can do to ammend the employment agreement to better protect the employee from subjective termination?
