Many employment contracts in Oregon are negotiable because both parties frequently find it beneficial to arrive on a unique agreement that best suits the circumstances.

It also gives employees some degree of control directly over employee productivity.

Common Terms in Oregon Employment Contracts

Job descriptions, wage levels, length of time of employment (or more likely, at will employment), and grounds for promotion or termination are typically included in the majority of Oregon employment contracts. 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.

Additionally, the contract can contain a termination clause, also known as a "severance clause". Courts have held that employers who violate these clauses when firing a person may be sued for wrongful termination. Furthermore, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to particular rules.
