Common Terms in New Jersey Employment Contracts
An employment contract in New Jersey will usually provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. However, there are also other, less common, clauses that are worthy of notice. First, an arbitration clause requires parties to forego their rights to access the courts for any 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. Also, work that is completed by an employee, or information obtained by them are covered in clauses known as confidentiality clauses and non-compete clauses.
