Implied Promises and Wrongful Termination
The existence of an implied employment contract—an agreement based on things your employer said and did—is another exception to the at-will rule.
This form of wrongful termination can be difficult to prove because most employers are very careful not to make promises of continued employment.
But implied contracts have been found where employers promised “permanent employment” or employment for a specific period of time or where employers set forth specific forms of progressive discipline in an employee manual.
