A Brunswick, Georgia employment contract is an agreement where the employer and employee each intend to legally bind the other to specificed conditions in the work relationship. Georgia 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 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 Georgia Employment Contracts

An employment contract in Georgia will typically provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. However, there are also other, less common, clauses that are worthy of notice. First, an arbitration clause requires parties to forego their rights to access the courts for any employment dispute.

Furthermore, the contract can contain a termination clause, also known as a "severance clause". Courts have held that employers who violate these clauses when firing a person may be sued for wrongful termination. Third, work that is completed by an employee, or information obtained by them are covered in clauses known as confidentiality clauses and non-compete clauses.
