Find the right Employment Contracts attorney in Westminster, CA

A Westminster, California employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to certain conditions in the work relationship. Many 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 period 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 usually include many terms such as a description of the job, employment duration (generally at-will employment), compensation/benefits, and grounds for terminating. Contracts might also contain less commonly used clauses. First, arbitration clauses require parties to give up their rights to sue in court for any type of employment dispute.

Also, a severance clause or "termination clause" outlines the process for ending the employment. Courts have held employers liable for wrongful termination when violating such clauses. Furthermore, confidentiality and non-compete clauses make any information obtained or work completed by an employee under contract subject to particular rules.
