Eric Welter Authors Chapter on At-Will Employment for Employment Law Deskbook

Published on September 12, 2014

Welter attorney provides insights and strategies pertaining to at-will employment for the new Maryland Employment Law Deskbook.

Herndon, VA (September 12, 2014) – Eric A. Welter, founder and president of Welter Law Firm, P.C. (Welter), recently lent his knowledge on employment law to the MSBA Maryland Employment Law Deskbook by authoring Chapter 2: “The At-Will Employment Relationship.”

The book features an array of topics and in-depth discussions centered around labor and employment law including the National Labor Relations Act and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act.

The book is published by the Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA) and constitutes a definitive reference source for attorneys and employers in the State of Maryland. The MSBA Maryland Employment Law Deskbook is a long-awaited addition to the MSBA’s catalog of publications.

The Deskbook is carefully written to offer compelling, practical, cost-effective advice in representing plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state causes of action, including claims alleged under the National Labor Relations Act, Federal Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Maryland Labor & Employment Code.

Of many highlights in this publication, of great significance is the discussion and overview of the landmark case Friolo v. Frankel, 373 Md. 501 (2003)—discussed at length in Chapter 25—in which Maryland’s highest court recently heard issues pertaining to an award of shifted attorney’s fees. Whether you are a seasoned or new practitioner, the MSBA Maryland Employment Law Deskbook is designed to engage all readers, and is crafted to assist practitioners in becoming more familiar with the complexities of employment law.
