Model Employment Termination Act Law and Legal Definition
Model Employment Termination Act is a uniform act drafted by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in 1991. This act protects employees from wrongful discharge by requiring that all dismissals should be made for good cause. The remedy for dismissing an employee without good cause is reinstatement, back-pay, lost benefits, or, in the alternative, a lump-sum severance payment. The act is adopted by Delaware and District of Columbia.
