Experienced Counsel To Advise You On At-Will Employees In San Diego

The default rule in California is that all employees are at-will, unless that presumption is rebutted. Unfortunately, it can be very easy for an employer to inadvertently rebut that presumption through its documents or actions. An at-will relationship is very important in the employment context because it gives both the employer and the employee the ability to terminate the relationship for any reason or no reason at all (as long as the reason is not illegal).

The attorneys at Mayfield Bustarde, LLP can help you draft your employer offer letter, Employment Agreements and Employee Handbooks in order to preserve the at-will employment arrangement. In the event that you have an employee who can only be terminated for cause, it is vital that cause if clearly defined within the applicable documents so that if the employer wants to terminate that employee, both parties have a clear understanding of the conduct or criteria necessary to invoke that termination.
