Shooting holes in employment at will



The ordinarily sensible David Kopel applauds a West Virginia ruling curtailing the scope of employment at will in a case where the Southland Corp., of 7-11 store fame, terminated a worker for resisting a robbery. Prof. Bainbridge argues (correctly, in my opinion) that jubilation is by no means in order: freedom should mean freedom for everyone, including employers.
