A San Gabriel, California employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to particular conditions in the work relationship. Most California employment contracts can be negotiable since both parties benefit from a suitable agreement that is unique to their circumstances. If conditions are met, the employment contract for a set amount of time will provide the employee with a guarantee of job security. It also gives employees some degree of control directly over employee productivity.
Common Terms in California Employment Contracts
California employment contracts normally include many terms such as a description of the job, employment duration (generally at-will employment), compensation/benefits, and grounds for terminating. Other clauses that are less common might also be contained in the contract. These might include: first, an arbitration clause stating that the parties may not sue should a dispute arise regarding the employment
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. Additionally, information or work that is obtained or completed by an employee may be subject to confidentiality and non-compete clauses.
