Many employment contracts in Washington 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 Washington Employment Contracts

An employment contract in Washington will usually provide for the following terms: job position description, compensation, duration of employment period (or at-will), and grounds for promotion/termination. 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.
