Important Provisions to an Employment Contract
One of the best ways to prevent employment contract disputes is to have a well-written employment contract in place. Some of the most important components of a well-written employment contract include the following:
- General information – Most employment contracts contain general information, including the employee’s start date, along with the benefits and compensation that the employee will receive.
- Confidentiality agreement – Some employment contracts include a confidentiality agreement that prevents an employee from disclosing certain processes, trade secrets, and data to third parties. In some instances, these provisions may even apply after an employee leaves the company.
- Basis of termination – While some employment contracts indicate that either an employee or an employer has the discretion to terminate a contract at any time, or for any reason, other employment contracts are more specific. For example, an employer may be permitted to terminate an employment contract if the employee violates one or more terms of the contract, or if he or she cannot perform the required job duties because of developing a physical disability.
- Choice of law clauses – These contractual provisions discuss which state’s laws apply, in the event a contractual dispute exists and one of the parties to the contract files a lawsuit.
- Covenants not to compete – A non-compete clause prevents a former employee from starting a business (usually in the same geographical area) that directly competes with the employer’s business. However, these types of clauses cannot be overly general and prohibit an employee from working in the same industry.
