Employment contracts in Laredo, Texas are legally binding and consist of an agreement between employer and employee regarding stated work conditions.

Employment contracts specifying a period of employment provide employees with some measure of job security if conditions are satisfied. They further permit the employer to directly control employee productivity to some degree.

Common Terms in Texas Employment Contracts

Terms that are included in the majority of employment contracts in Texas include the job description, salary or wages, length of employment (or if it at will) and grounds for termination or advancement. 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, 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, confidentiality and non-compete clauses make any information obtained or work completed by an employee under contract subject to particular rules.
