This chapter reflects upon the impact of the background employment-at-will rule in the USA on employment equity, labour law, and other regimes of protective labour legislation. It urges caution about jettisoning traditional legal strategies, arguing forcefully that there can be no workplace equity without workplace justice, and that there can be no workplace justice ‘in the shadow of employment at will’.

Keywords: background employment; USA; employment equity; litigation strategy; labour law
