Find the right Employment Contracts attorney in Murfreesboro, TN

Employment contracts in Murfreesboro, Tennessee are legally binding and consist of an agreement between employer and employee regarding stated work conditions. Many Tennessee employment contracts can be negotiable since both parties benefit from a suitable agreement that is unique to their 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 Tennessee Employment Contracts

The majority of employment contracts in the state of Tennessee include the following: salary or wages, job descriptions, length of employment (if any - most are at will), and termination/advancement grounds. Some clauses are less common but still worthy of being noted. First, the contract may contain an arbitration clause which requires that parties forgo going to court over an employment dispute.

Also, a severance clause or "termination clause" outlines the process for ending the employment. Courts have held employers liable for wrongful termination when violating such clauses. Moreover, clauses covering confidentiality and non-compete clauses subject all information completed or obtained by employees to specific rules.
