Sarasota Employment Contracts Attorney

Find the right Employment Contracts attorney in Sarasota, FL

A Sarasota, Florida employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to particular conditions in the work relationship. Florida contracts are typically negotiable since both employer and employee benefit from an agreement that is tailored to their specific work setting. 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 Florida Employment Contracts

Terms that are included in the majority of employment contracts in Florida include the job description, salary or compensation, length of employment (or if it at will) and grounds for termination or advancement. Contracts may 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.

Second, 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. Additionally, confidentiality and non-compete clauses make all information obtained or work completed by an employee under contract subject to specific rules.

Sarasota, Florida is the county seat of Sarasota County, located on the central Gulf Coast. It has a population of about 53,000 people.

Humans first settled Florida, including the Sarasota area, about 15,000 years ago - not very long after their initial arrival on North America. At that time, sea levels were much lower, and Sarasota would have been about 100 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, rather than right on the coast. Europeans first settled the area in the 1600s.

Modernly, Sarasota has been hit hard by the crash of the U.S. housing market. However, it is still regularly visited by tourists, and tourism remains a major sector of its economy. Sarasota is also home to many sites of historic interest, from prehistoric archeological sites, to Civil War forts.

The architectural style prevalent in Sarasota was once so popular that it is now an established architectural style, known as the "Sarasota School" or "Sarasota Modern."
