Common Terms in Oklahoma Employment Contracts
Terms that are included in the majority of employment contracts in Oklahoma include the job description, salary or wages, length of employment (or if it at will) and grounds for termination or advancement. Contracts might 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.
Also, the contract can contain a termination clause, also known as a "severance clause".
