Common Terms in Massachusetts Employment Contracts

An employment contract in Massachusetts will typically provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. Nonetheless, 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.

Additionally, 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. Furthermore, information or work that is obtained or completed by an employee may be subject to confidentiality and non-compete clauses.
