Employment at will puts the employee in a state of uncertainty about his or her future in the job. Again, when dismissal happens impromptu, it takes time for the employee to settle with another job. What is more, employment at will undermines the intellectual and professional competence of the employee. To this effect, I do not agree with the doctrine.

It is however good to note that even under employment at will, one cannot be given a sack based on illegal issues (Repa, 2011). This means that employees can be assured of some level of security at post. All they need to do is to adhere to basic rules and regulations that their employers give them and they can be assured of keeping their positions for long.
