At Will Employment Law and Job Termination

Losing your job may be bad news, and may be unfair. But in Louisiana, as in most states, a job is usually "at-will." "At-will" means that your employer can fire you for any reason or even for no reason at all, unless the reason is illegal. You can also leave anytime you want. But if you have an employment contract, or you are a union or government worker, your job is probably not "at-will." In that case, you probably have some extra protection against losing your job. But no matter what kind of job you have, if your boss is determined to fire you it is usually hard to stop it.
