An employment contract in Charlestown, consists of a legally binding agreement between the employer and the employee for conditions specified for the employment relationship. In New Hampshire, most employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at an unique agreement suitable for the circumstances.

Common Terms in New Hampshire Employment Contracts
Terms that are included in the majority of employment contracts in New Hampshire include the job description, salary or compensation, length of employment (or if it at will) and grounds for termination or advancement. Please note, however, that contracts can contain other less common clauses. First, for example, an arbitration clause might require the parties to forgo the right to sue in the event of an 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, work that is completed by an employee, or information obtained by them are covered in clauses known as confidentiality clauses and non-compete clauses.
