Can An Employer Fire An Employee In Washington Without Cause?

If the employment relationship is “at will,” then yes, the employer can fire an employee without cause. For more information on “at will employment,” click HERE.

Employment agreements, Collective Bargaining Agreements, or specific employer policies may provide that the employment relationship can only be terminated “for cause,” or for certain specified reasons. If no such contract or policy exists, then in general, the employee can be terminated without cause.
