Masonry Magazine: Dealing With Employment Claims


Dealing With Employment Claims


In employment law, there are two broad categories of civil claims brought by employees against their employers (1) common-law claims over abuse of the at-will employment doctrine and (2) civil rights violations proceeding from the Commerce Clause and 13th and 14th amendments to the Constitution. While both categories of claims are related to abuse of power by employers, each arises from different common law or constitutional sources. The at-will employment doctrine is common law (not criminal law) and varies from state to state, but civil rights claims emerge from laws passed by Congress and are uniform for all 50 states. Employees pursuing claims over unlawful at-will dismissal must hire an attorney and pursue their case in common law court in their state.
