This question involves thinking critically about the three exceptions to at-will employment. At-will employment suggests that both employees and the employer are legally allowed to terminate the relationship at any time without notice, unless both parties sign an actual contract that states otherwise. However, there are three exceptions: public-policy exception, implied-contract exception, and covenant-of-good-faith exception. If you had to choose the exception with the most valid rationale for protecting an employee's rights, which one would it be and why?
Do you think the employer-employee relationship is one which provides equal power to the parties, and why? Does the covenant-of-good-faith exception to at-will employment level the playing field? Why, or why not?

We also note Liebeck’s attorney attempted to settle again just before trial date but still McDonald refused.
