Common Terms in Oklahoma Employment Contracts
Job descriptions, wage levels, length of time of employment (or more likely, at will employment), and grounds for promotion or termination are usually included in the majority of Oklahoma employment contracts. 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.
Secondly, 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. Third, clauses covering confidentiality and non-compete clauses subject all information completed or obtained by employees to certain rules.
