An employment contract in Nyack, consists of a legally binding agreement between the employer and the employee for conditions stated for the employment relationship. New York contracts are typically negotiable since both employer and employee benefit from an agreement that is tailored to their specific work setting. Employment contracts specifying a period of employment provide employees with some measure of job security if conditions are satisfied. They further permit the employer to directly control employee productivity to some degree.
Common Terms in New York Employment Contracts
Terms that are included in the majority of employment contracts in New York include the job description, salary or wages, 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 instance, an arbitration clause may require the parties to forgo the right to sue in the event of an employment dispute.
Moreover, 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. Moreover, work that is completed by an employee, or information obtained by them are covered in clauses known as confidentiality clauses and non-compete clauses.
