Judges said employers can fire employees for any reason, no reason, dumb reason, false reason, or morally wrong reason.
So employers did :
• An accountant fired because he refused to participate illegal manipulation of pension reserve
• A medical doctor got fired for refusing to continue a research that is medically unethical and unsuitable for use in the United States
• An employee was terminated when it was discovered she had diabetes
• An employee fired for serving on a grand jury
• An employee fired for testifying truthfully at court proceedings
• An employee was terminated 3 days after reporting her supervisor touched her.

• The court ruled out various avenues for escaping at will status.
• Public policy is an exception to the termination at will doctrine, but often court refuse allowing public policy exception.
• "If you discover fraudulent manipulation by high officers, do not report it but cover it up. Otherwise you will be fired.
• Improperties illegal activities too vague
• Jeopardizing patient care in hospital is insubordination
• Leaking improprieties at a hospital
• Serving jury duty a cause of termination
• Testifying truthfully at court proceedings reason for termination

• Court reversed jury verdict in favor of pregnant employee
• Court dismissed case when company monitored email activities of Employees above 40 years old and fired employees above 40 years old
