A Wilton Manors, Florida employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to specificed conditions in the work relationship. Florida contracts are mostly negotiable since both employer and employee benefit from an agreement that is tailored to their particular work setting. 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 Florida 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 Florida employment contracts. 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.
Additionally, 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. Thirdly, clauses covering confidentiality and non-compete clauses subject all information completed or obtained by employees to certain rules.
