Termination for Cause An employee’s failure to report to work on time, to respect a supervisor, or to satisfactorily perform a job duty could constitute a valid reason for termination. An employer might also have the right to terminate an at-will employee because he did not fit in with the culture of the workforce—for example, if he appeared rigid with respect to work rules, while the workplace prided itself on its relaxed atmosphere.

Termination for No Cause The employment at will doctrine permits an employer to terminate an at-will employee without cause, meaning there need be no particular reason for the employer’s decision to end the employment relationship.
