Common Terms in Nebraska Employment Contracts

Other clauses that are less common might also be contained in the contract. These might include: first, an arbitration clause stating that the parties may not sue should a dispute arise regarding the employment
Second, termination or severance clauses detail the procedure for ending employment.
