Employment Contracts in Leeds, Alabama

A Leeds, Alabama employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to certain conditions in the work relationship. In Alabama, most 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 further lets employees have some direct control over the productivity of employees.

Common Terms in Alabama Employment Contracts

An employment contract in Alabama will usually provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. Some clauses are less common but still worthy of being noted. First, the contract might include an arbitration clause which requires that parties forgo going to court over an employment dispute.

Furthermore, the contract can contain a termination clause, also known as a "severance clause". Courts have held that employers who violate these clauses when firing a person may be sued for wrongful termination. Also, confidentiality and non-compete clauses make all information obtained or work completed by an employee under contract subject to particular rules.
