Employment contracts in Radnor, Pennsylvania are legally binding and consist of an agreement between employer and employee regarding stated work conditions. In Pennsylvania, many employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. An employment contract for a set period provides the employee with a guarantee of job security if the conditions are met, and it further allows employers some measure of direct control over employee productivity.

Common Terms in Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania employment contracts. 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.

Also, 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. Also, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to specific rules.
