  • Employment relationships in Mississippi are presumed to be at-will, meaning the relationship can be terminated by either party, at any time, with or without cause. See Termination for Cause.
  • Mississippi employers may not terminate employees for certain off-duty conduct and have more leeway in other circumstances. See Off-Duty Conduct.
  • Mississippi has no special requirements regarding the timing of final paychecks to departing employees except in limited situations. See Termination Pay.
