A Baxley, Georgia employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to certain conditions in the work relationship. Georgia contracts are generally negotiable since both employer and employee benefit from an agreement that is tailored to their individual 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 Georgia Employment Contracts
Job descriptions, wage levels, length of time of employment (or more likely, at will employment), and grounds for promotion or termination are normally included in the majority of Georgia 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, the procedures for ending employment can be stated in a "termination clause". Courts may hold an employer who violates such clauses liable for wrongful termination. Furthermore, clauses covering confidentiality and non-compete clauses subject all information completed or obtained by employees to particular rules.
