Common Terms in Mississippi 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 Mississippi employment contracts. 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.
Secondly, 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. Third, confidentiality and non-compete clauses make all information obtained or work completed by an employee under contract subject to certain rules.
