Mod 9 Discussion
Employment-at-will means that an employer has the ability to discharge an employee at any time, notwithstanding contractual relations. You have heard through the company grapevine that profits are down for the year and that 10% of the workforce will be discharged at the end of the year, which is in six months.
Remember, food, clothing, shelter, gas, and education are tied to your employment wages. Without income, your world evaporates rapidly, your social life vaporizes, and your health might go up in smoke, also!
What is your strategy to safeguard your employment? Describe specific steps that you would take to ensure you are not one of the 10% dismissed?
