  • Idaho is an at-will employment state, which means employees can generally be discharged for any reason or no reason, though exceptions do apply. See Termination for Cause.
  • Employers may not terminate employees in violation of laws designed to protect employee privacy, such as restrictions on use of polygraph testing. See Employee Privacy.
  • Idaho employers must pay employees all wages upon separation from employment according to legally prescribed deadlines. See Termination Pay.
