Barclay Damon Live: Labor & Employment Podcast—"Can I Ask That, Bonus Episode: Exception to At-Will Employment in NYS"

In this brief episode of Barclay Damon Live: Labor & Employment Podcast, host Ari Kwiatkowski gives her last word (for now) on employment applications and employee handbooks, citing a niche 80s court decision having to do with an exception to New York’s at-will employment doctrine. In this case, Weiner v. McGraw-Hill, the court decided against the employer’s request to dismiss the case based on the plaintiff’s arguments that, despite the employee handbook stating that he could only be terminated for “just cause,” he had been terminated without just cause. With no employee contract or other formal agreement in place, the court found there was an implied employment contract. Something for employers to watch out for? Listen in for the details.
