English: Implied-contracts exception to at-will employment. Blue states have no such exception; red states have some implied-contract exception. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Massachusetts is an “At Will Employment” state.  What does this mean to you and me?  Well, basically it means that every employee has the right to quit whenever they want.  However, just as an employee has the right to quit whenever they want so does the employer have the legal right, without repercussions, to fire any employee whenever they want and for no legal reason.  So, even though you may be a loyal great employee who enjoys their job, your employer without any reason can legally fire you whenever they choose to do so.  You have no rights.
