Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the employee is a union employee, then the employee has to be terminated in accordance with the terms of the union contract. A government employee or union employee has a property interest in their job and the employer must have some good cause to terminate the employee. If the employee is under a contract for employment, such as a teacher, then the school needs no good cause to refuse to renew the contract, but once the contract is signed the school needs good cause to terminate during mid contract.
