Hello again, Elisabeth.Congratulations on the job offer. I hope it is something you will enjoy.As for your QUESTION: Is there an actual legal difference having those words (no reason or cause) written out in this contract? ANSWER: No, the employment at will doctrine typically provides that either an employer or employee may terminate the relationship without good cause or for no reason at all. That is generally how it is defined and the additional language included in this contract does appear to be for clarification purposes only. There is really no difference from a legal perspective with or without this additional language since indicating that the employment is "at will" generally indicates that the relationship may be terminated without good cause or for no reason at all.Here is a link which provides more information on the employment at will doctrine:http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/employment-at-will-definition-30022.html
