Stark & Stark’s Employment Litigation group authored the article The Eroding ‘At-Will’ Employment Doctrine for the December 8, 2008 edition of the New Jersey Law Journal.
The article discusses the history and basic principles of an "at-will" employee relationship. The article also stresses the need for employers to include a prominent, clear and conspicuous disclaimer at the beginning of their employee handbook, and any other relevant documents, stating that nothing in the handbook or other documents changes the “at-will” nature of the employment relationship, nor does it create a contract for employment.
