At-Will Employment Agreement

Section 2922 of the Labor Code states that an employer may let his employees at will, for any reason or for no reason. A fortiori, the employer may act in a perpeakable, arbitrary or inconsistent manner, without providing specific safeguards such as prior warnings, fair procedures, objective assessment or preferential reassignment. Since the employment relationship is “contractual in principle” (Foley, a.o.a.3d 47 Cal.3d 654, 696), restrictions on these employer rights are a matter of expressiveness or tacit agreement of the parties. The mere existence of an employment relationship does not allow the employment relationship to be expected to continue or end only under certain conditions, unless the parties have actually agreed to such conditions. . . .
