Employment Contracts in Van Buren, Arkansas

A Van Buren, Arkansas 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 Arkansas, most employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. Employment contracts specifying a term of employment provide employees with some measure of job security if conditions are satisfied. They further permit the employer to directly control employee productivity to some degree.

Common Terms in Arkansas Employment Contracts

Job descriptions, wage levels, length of time of employment (or more likely, at will employment), and grounds for promotion or termination are normally included in the majority of Arkansas employment contracts. However, 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.

Second, 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. Moreover, information or work that is obtained or completed by an employee may be subject to confidentiality and non-compete clauses.
