5.2.4 Employment at Will

Except as provided otherwise in written agreements, the employer-employee relationship in the archdiocese is employment “at will” where either the employer or the employee can terminate the employment relationship at any time, for any reason or no reason, with or without notice. That is, this relationship does not imply a guarantee of employment or any contractual obligation. While staff members may receive promotions, pay raises​, bonuses, commendations, or other indications of positive performance, these are normal incidents of employment and do not alter the at-will nature of employment in the archdiocese.​​
