Employment Law

Employment in Iowa is at will. As such, absent an employment contract, the employment relationship is terminable by either party at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all. However, terminating the employment relationship at any time, for any reason, or for no reason at all is prohibited if it constitutes a wrongful termination or otherwise violates employment law.

Not only is one prohibited from the wrongful termination of an employment relationship, terminating the employment relationship based upon age, race, creed, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, or disability is also prohibited. An employer is further prohibited from disciplining, demoting, not hiring or not promoting based upon the same characteristics, or other characteristics that are protected by law.
