Employment Contracts in Benson, Arizona
A Benson, Arizona 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 Arizona, 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 Arizona 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 Arizona employment contracts. Please note, however, that contracts can contain other less common clauses. First, for example, an arbitration clause might require the parties to forgo the right to sue in the event of an employment dispute.
Second, termination or severance clauses detail the procedure for ending employment. Courts have held that when an employer violates these in firing an employee, the employee may sue for wrongful termination. Thirdly, information or work that is obtained or completed by an employee may be subject to confidentiality and non-compete clauses.
