empleo a voluntad

I agree (and have used) that "empleo a voluntad" is an appropriate equivalent. I usually add "de las partes" ("a voluntad de las partes") to emphasize that both parties give their consent to the employment and its terms & conditions.

Good luck.

relación laboral que se puede rescindir sin causa justificada

Es importante aclararlo bien, ya que el "employment at will" es propio del derecho anglosajón.

Yo lo traduciría así:

A excepción de la política relativa a la posibilidad de rescindir la relación laboral sin causa justificada, la cual sólo puede cambiarse por parte del presidente y por escrito, la compañía se reserva el derecho de revisar, eliminar y agregar provisiones al presente manual del empleado.
