An employment contract in Wayne, 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 an 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
An employment contract in Nebraska will usually provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. Some clauses are less common but still worthy of being noted. First, the contract may contain an arbitration clause which requires that parties forgo going to court over an employment dispute.
Also, 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. Furthermore, work that is completed by an employee, or information obtained by them are covered in clauses known as confidentiality clauses and non-compete clauses.
