Employment Contracts in West Helena, Arkansas

A West Helena, 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, many employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. Employment contracts specifying a period 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. 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.

Additionally, the procedures for ending employment can be stated in a "termination clause". Courts may hold an employer who violates such clauses liable for wrongful termination. Thirdly, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to certain rules.
