An employment contract in Columbus, consists of a legally binding agreement between the employer and the employee for conditions stated for the employment relationship. In Nebraska, many employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. An employment contract for a set period provides the employee with a guarantee of job security if the conditions are met, and it further 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. Contracts might 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.

Moreover, 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. Additionally, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to particular rules.
