An employment contract in Chadron, 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 usually included in the majority of Nebraska employment contracts. Contracts may also contain less commonly used clauses. First, arbitration clauses require parties to give up their rights to sue in court for any type of 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, clauses covering confidentiality and non-compete clauses subject all information completed or obtained by employees to certain rules.
