Video Summary

  • The default rule in Kansas and Missouri regarding employment is the at-will employment doctrine, allowing employers to terminate employees for any reason or no reason at all.
  • There are exceptions to the at-will employment doctrine, such as civil rights laws and non-discrimination laws that protect certain classes, including individuals with disabilities.
  • If an employee believes they were wrongfully terminated, it may be considered separately from their injury case.
  • Employment agreements or contracts with employers can override the at-will employment doctrine, providing specific rights and remedies for employees, which should be examined in such cases.
