Over the last several years I frequently have found myself explaining at-will employment to law faculty/students in foreign countries who are incredulous at how little protection American law provides to employees. Now, I'm writing an article for a non-American audience, and I want to make the point that under the at-will rule, employees legally can be fired for bizarre or idiosyncratic reasons. If you have illustrative examples of cases that help illustrate this, please leave a comment. I'd love to collect some good examples to help illustrate the point.
