Like most states, Pennsylvania follows the “at-will" doctrine meaning an employer can dismiss an “at-will" employee for any reason, at any time, without prior notice, as long as the employer does not violate public policy or state, federal or local law. Most employers know all too well that the limitations on termination, however, can be vast and complicated. This roundtable discussion will discuss the scenarios participants have encountered when dealing with termination decisions and the considerations taken into account when making those decisions. Some issues that may be discussed include:

  • Can I terminate an employee who just called to inform the company he has been arrested?
  • Can I terminate an employee if she fails a drug test or is caught using marijuana allegedly for medical reasons during work hours?
  • Can I terminate an employee who has reported wrongdoing by the employer even though she has not been performing well?
  • I just learned that an employee was convicted of sexual assault years ago, can and should I terminate, particularly in this #MeToo era?

Through shared experiences, this discussion seeks to help participants further their company's efforts to avoid litigation or reduce liability in an environment where employment actions continue to rise. Registration is limited to ensure a targeted and free-flowing discussion. Bring your problems, questions and ideas.
