Shorewood, employment contracts between an employer and employee legally bind them to specific conditions in their work relationship. Most employment contracts in Wisconsin are negotiable because both parties often find it beneficial to arrive on an unique agreement that best suits the circumstances. Employees with an employment contract specified a time of employment are provided with a guarantee of job security if conditions of the contract are met, and it allows their managers to have some type of control over productivity.
Common Terms in Wisconsin Employment Contracts
Job descriptions, wage levels, length of time of employment (or more likely, at will employment), and grounds for promotion or termination are usually included in the majority of Wisconsin employment contracts. 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.
Secondly, the procedures for ending employment can be stated in a "termination clause". Courts may hold an employer who violates such clauses liable for wrongful termination. Thirdly, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to specific rules.
