Common Terms in New York Employment Contracts

The majority of employment contracts in the state of New York include the following: salary or wages, job descriptions, duration of employment (if any - most are at will), and termination/advancement grounds. 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.

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.

Life in Rome

Rome, New York is a city in Oneida County. As of the 2000 Census, Rome's population was about 35,000 people.

Starting with the Revolutionary War, and continuing for many years thereafter, the city of Rome was referred to as "Fort Stanwix" - because that military installation was the only building in the area at the time. The town changed its name to "Rome" sometime in the 1800s, though the exact time of this name change, and the reasons for it, are unknown. It is presumed to be named after the modern Italian city of Rome, or perhaps the ancient empire of the same name.

Construction of the Erie Canal, which eventually connected the Atlantic Ocean with the Great lakes,began in Rome, and led to its industrial ascension, thanks to the Canal's role in the industrialization of America. Today, Rome is home to one of the last examples of an unique natural habitat: sand plains. The Rome Sand Plains are a mosaic of sand dunes, peat bogs, and hardwood forest, creating a huge amount of biodiversity. The sand plains are a major draw for tourists, especially nature enthusiasts.
