Featured Employment Case

Sheppard v. Morgan Keegan & Co., 218 Cal. App. 3d 61, 266 Cal. Rptr. 784 (Ct. App. 1990)

On appeal from a summary judgment for the employer in an action for breach of contract, fraud, and wrongful termination, the Court of Appeal held that: (1) the employer could not assert at-will employment relationship as basis for “separating” employee before he began actively working but after he had accepted employment and moved across country, and (2) genuine issues of material fact as to reasons for employee’s termination precluded summary judgment.  The opinion states in part as follows: “Labor Code section 2922 provides, in part, that “[a]ll employment, having no specified term, may be terminated at the will of either party on notice to the other….” This section establishes a presumption that in the absence of an express oral or written agreement which specifies the length of employment or grounds for termination, the employment is at will. (Foley v. Interactive Data Corp. (1988) 47 Cal.3d 654, 677, 254 Cal.Rptr. 211, 765 P.2d 373.) It is undisputed that the employment agreement here defined no specific grounds for termination. It is also undisputed that appellant’s employment with respondent was permanent, but not for any fixed time. A *66 permanent employment contract, even though a specific salary is negotiated annually, is considered a contract for an indefinite period and, absent public policy considerations or statutory requirements, is terminable at will by either party for any reason. (Consolidated Theatres, Inc. v. Theatrical Stage Employees Union (1968) 69 Cal.2d 713, 727, fn. 12, 73 Cal.Rptr. 213, 447 P.2d 325; Newfield v. Insurance Co. of the West (1984) 156 Cal.App.3d 440, 444, 203 Cal.Rptr. 9; Marin v. Jacuzzi (1964) 224 Cal.App.2d 549, 551, 553, 36 Cal.Rptr. 880.) The presumption of an at will contract may be overcome by evidence that, despite the absence of a specified term, the parties agreed that the employer’s power to terminate would be limited in some way, for example, that termination would be permitted only for “good cause.” (Foley v. Interactive Data Corp., supra, 47 Cal.3d at p. 677, 254 Cal.Rptr. 211, 765 P.2d 373; Pugh v. See’s Candies, Inc. (1981) 116 Cal.App.3d 311, 324–325, 171 Cal.Rptr. 917.
