Wisconsin is an “at-will employment” state. This means that in Wisconsin, an employee can be fired for a good reason, a bad reason, or no reason whatsoever (so long as the motivation is not unlawful, of course). In an employee-employer relationship, contracts can create an exception to the at-will employment doctrine by defining “good cause” for the termination of the employment relationship. Businesses should be sure that if they want to enter into a contractual arrangement with an employee, that the contract is specifically tailored to the position and the business’ workplace, sets forth clear and concise expectations to measure performance, and contains comprehensive, enforceable provisions.
