Excerpt from Essay:

However, for such a policy to be considered by courts then it has must be in a clear language which could make an employee believe that a contractual offer was being made, it must be distributed to employees, and the employee shows his or her acceptance of the offer by commencing or continuing to for the employer (Koch and Rita, 1996).

4. Was Wayne terminated for "just cause"? Why or why not?

Wayne's termination was for a "just cause". Even though he had a good performance history with the company, the accusations against him would result to termination according to the supervisory policy. First, the accusation of "setting back" of odometers that he could not explain amounted to dishonesty which was enough reason for immediate termination. He is also accused of insubordination during a meeting with Bell and Findlay which also qualifies for immediate termination.

5. How can companies protect themselves against lawsuits alleging wrongful dismissal?

There are steps that a company can take to protect themselves against lawsuits by both avoiding employee lawsuits and making it easier for the company to prevail in case a lawsuit is filed. In summary these steps include; documenting and keeping a record of all events that happen between the employee and the employer as that can be the only proof, honestly evaluating employee performance and immediately addressing issues that arise in relation to performance, and the most significant of all is preserving "at-will" employment rights and this should be clearly spelt out in the offer letters and employee handbooks. This status should be acknowledged by employees and signed in writing for recording purposes (Rosenblatt, 2006).
