"At-Will" vs. Contract Employment Terms

Life in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City, Utah is the capital of, and largest city in, the state of Utah. It is also the county seat of Salt Lake County. It has a population of about 180,000 people in the city proper, and its greater urban area has a population of over 2 million people.

Salt Lake City was established as the center of Mormon settlement in the Utah Territory, with the first permanent settlement being established in 1847. Disputes quickly sprung up between the settlers and the federal government, largely over the former Mormon practice of polygamy (marrying multiple wives to a single man), which the religion was believed to encourage or mandate at the time. As part of an agreement to end these disputes, Utah (and the Mormon Church) banned polygamy, as a condition of Utah's admission to the Union.

Modernly, Salt Lake City is a thriving medium-sized city, and it is one of the main population and economic centers in the Mountain West. Its economy is largely service-based. Utah is known for having some of the best skiing conditions in North America, so winter tourism is a major sector in the local economy.
