Common Terms in Maryland Employment Contracts

Maryland employment contracts usually include many terms such as a description of the job, employment duration (generally at-will employment), compensation/benefits, and grounds for terminating. Please note, however, that contracts can contain other less common clauses. First, for example, an arbitration clause might require the parties to forgo the right to sue in the event of an employment dispute.

Furthermore, termination or severance clauses detail the procedure for ending employment.

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