"Washington state Supreme Court upholds employer's right to fire"



A Seattle Times editorial finds it disturbing that the court was so closely split, 5 to 4, on whether to greatly widen the "concerted activities" statutory exception to employment at will. Justices "Susan Owens, Tom Chambers, Debra Stephens and Mary Fairhurst, who sided with the complaining managers, would have made a mess of the labor law of Washington." [Briggs et al v. Nova Services opinion, PDF]
