This comment examines the denial of a retaliatory discharge cause of action to corporate counsel. Such a denial was the result of judicial concern over the need to protect the attorney-client relationship. The author concludes that, as a result, corporate attorneys have fewer employment rights and protections than any of their fellow employees. This comment advocates three possible solutions through which corporate counsel may maintain a retaliatory discharge action.
