Alleged Fraud Cover-Ups and Employment at Will

New York has long been one of the great bastions of the employment-at-will doctrine.  One of the few groups of employees who get an exception to that are, interestingly enough, lawyers.   A state judge has ruled that the doctrine does not protect a law firm against a claim that it fired an associate who "refus[ed] to allow himself to be drawn into the cover-up of defendants' wrongful acts."
