Common Terms in Florida Employment Contracts

The majority of employment contracts in the state of Florida include the following: salary or wages, job descriptions, duration of employment (if any - most are at will), and termination/advancement grounds. Some clauses are less common but still worthy of being noted. First, the contract might include an arbitration clause which requires that parties forgo going to court over an employment dispute.

Furthermore, 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. Furthermore, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to specific rules.
