  • Just Cause

    I live in New Jersey and am wondering whether or not it is a just casue state as opposed to an at will state.My impression is that it is but I am not certain.

    Assuming it is a just cause state,can you tell me what the conditions of just casue termination are?

    Thank You

    Hi Jeff.
    I could not find any info which specifically lists states that are not subject tot the at-will employment rule.

    Here's what I did find: If an employee is not under contract, he or she is an at-will employee. An employer can dismiss an at-will employee hired for an indefinite term at any time for any non-discriminatory reason.

    Some challenges and exceptions to at-will employment include: breach of implied contracts through employee handbooks, public policy violations, reliance on an offer of employment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    Unfortunately for at-will employees, you can get fired for any number of job-related, and non-job related reasons; for instance, your supervisor can fire you if he or she doesn’t like the clothes you wear, of if you tell lame jokes, or even if you simply rub your employer the wrong way.
