Employees are generally considered to be employed “at will,” meaning the employer can terminate the employment relationship at any time for any reason or no reason - just not an illegal reason. State and federal law, however, in addition to law created by judges, can permit an employee to claim that his or her termination of employment is wrongful or illegal. Employers in Connecticut are also governed by state statues and regulations governing the employment relationship and workplace matters.
