- Depending on whether employment is at-will or for a definite term, Iowa treats termination of employees differently. See Termination for Cause.
- Iowa adds several protections for whistleblowers to the protections created by federal law. See Whistleblower Protections.
- Iowa has its own Worker Adjustment and Notification Act, and this statute is more inclusive than the federal version, imposing additional requirements on Iowa employers. See Iowa Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.
