Highlight

The presumption of at-will employment may be modified by an employment handbook creating contractual rights to employment, or by the statutory proscription against unlawful age discrimination.
A prima facie case of discrimination in the employment context requires a plaintiff to prove membership in a protected class, satisfactory performance of the duties of a job, an adverse employment decision, and others not in the protected class were treated more favorably.
An employment handbook must be read as a whole to determine whether it overcomes the presumption of employment at will.
