"At-Will" vs. Contract Employment Terms

Most forms of work relationships are "at-will", though in some circumstances the employer and employee will have an employment contract for a particular period of time. So long as the reasons are not in violation of law, either the employee or the employer can terminate the position at any time under an "at-will" arrangement.
