What Is Employment At Will?
Pennsylvania is an “employment-at-will” state, meaning both employees and employers can freely end employment arrangements — employees can quit and employers can fire. The employers generally can terminate employees legally in many circumstances, including circumstances that seem unfair and even purposefully mean-spirited. This means that, for instance, employers can terminate employees they suspect of stealing even if the employee is innocent of the theft.
However, employers cannot terminate employees in retaliation for whistleblowing or for filing employment-related lawsuits, including sexual harassment lawsuits. They also can’t terminate employees for discriminatory reasons based on:
- Creed, color or national origin
- Sexual preference
