An employment contract in Closter, 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 an 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 normally 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.
Second, 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. Additionally, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to certain rules.
