An employment contract in Alliance, consists of a legally binding agreement between the employer and the employee for conditions specified for the employment relationship. In Nebraska, most employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at an unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. An employment contract for a set term provides the employee with a guarantee of job security if the conditions are met, and it also allows employers some measure of direct control over employee productivity.
Common Terms in Nebraska Employment Contracts
Job descriptions, wage levels, length of time of employment (or more likely, at will employment), and grounds for promotion or termination are typically included in the majority of Nebraska employment contracts. Some clauses are less common but still worthy of being noted. First, the contract might include an arbitration clause which requires that parties forgo going to court over an 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. Thirdly, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to particular rules.
