Common Terms in Wisconsin Employment Contracts

The majority of employment contracts in the state of Wisconsin include the following: salary or wages, job descriptions, length of employment (if any - most are at will), and termination/advancement grounds. Nonetheless, there are also other, less common, clauses that are worthy of notice. First, an arbitration clause requires parties to forego their rights to access the courts for any 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. Furthermore, information or work that is obtained or completed by an employee may be subject to confidentiality and non-compete clauses.
