An employment contract in Bay Shore, consists of a legally binding agreement between the employer and the employee for conditions specified for the employment relationship. New York contracts are generally negotiable since both employer and employee benefit from an agreement that is tailored to their individual work setting. An employment contract for a set term provides the employee with a guarantee of job security if the conditions are met, and it also allows employers some measure of direct control over employee productivity.
Common Terms in New York 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 York employment contracts. 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.
Furthermore, 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. 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.
