Employment Contracts in Fairhope, Alabama

A Fairhope, Alabama employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to particular conditions in the work relationship. In Alabama, many employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. The employment contract setting a term helps give employees a guarantee of job stability upon meeting the conditions, and it also lets employees have some direct control over the productivity of employees.

Common Terms in Alabama Employment Contracts

An employment contract in Alabama will normally provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. Nonetheless, there are also other, less common, clauses that are worthy of notice. First, an arbitration clause requires parties to forego their rights to access the courts for any employment dispute.

Also, a severance clause or "termination clause" outlines the process for ending the employment. Courts have held employers liable for wrongful termination when violating such clauses. Moreover, information or work that is obtained or completed by an employee may be subject to confidentiality and non-compete clauses.
