An employment contract in Camden, consists of a legally binding agreement between the employer and the employee for conditions specified for the employment relationship. In New Jersey, most employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. Employees with an employment contract specified a time of employment are provided with a guarantee of job security if conditions of the contract are met, and it allows their managers to have some type of control over productivity.
Common Terms in New Jersey 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 New Jersey 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.
Furthermore, termination or severance clauses detail the procedure for ending employment. Courts have held that when an employer violates these in firing an employee, the employee may sue for wrongful termination. Moreover, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to particular rules.
