Abstract

Limitations upon a private employer’s ability to dismiss employees exist in both Sweden and the United States. The extent and origins of those protections differ, however. This article identifies the protections being developed for private employees in the United States and the legal theories utilized to support those protections. The article also focuses upon Swedish legislation which protects private employees in that country. The differences in the laws of the two countries are highlighted and discussed.

Keywords: Employment-at-will, employer, dismissal, Sweden, contract theories, tort theories
