Employment contracts in Baytown, Texas are legally binding and consist of an agreement between employer and employee regarding specified work conditions. Most Texas 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 term provides the employee with a guarantee of job security if the conditions are met, and it also allows employers some measure of direct control over employee productivity.

Common Terms in Texas Employment Contracts

An employment contract in Texas will normally provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. Please note, however, that contracts can contain other less common clauses. First, for example, an arbitration clause might require the parties to forgo the right to sue in the event of an employment dispute.

Second, 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. Additionally, confidentiality and non-compete clauses make all information obtained or work completed by an employee under contract subject to specific rules.
