Employment at will

HR Glossary

Employment at will

The concept that an employer can terminate the tenure of any employee for any reason without having to establish ‘just cause’. The concept does not exist in Australian law, with employers required to give notice periods (in most cases) and legitimate reasons codified in legislation for terminating employment.
