A Warren, Arkansas employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to specificed conditions in the work relationship. In Arkansas, most employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at an 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 usually 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.
Secondly, 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. Third, clauses covering confidentiality and non-compete clauses subject all information completed or obtained by employees to certain rules.
