Casper, employment contracts between an employer and employee legally bind them to particular conditions in their work relationship. In Wyoming, most employment contracts are negotiable to enable both parties to arrive at a unique agreement suitable for the circumstances. The employment contract setting a term helps give employees a guarantee of job stability upon meeting the conditions, and it further lets employees have some direct control over the productivity of employees.
Common Terms in Wyoming Employment Contracts
Terms that are included in the majority of employment contracts in Wyoming include the job description, salary or compensation, length of employment (or if it at will) and grounds for termination or advancement. 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, 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. Additionally, work that is completed by an employee, or information obtained by them are covered in clauses known as confidentiality clauses and non-compete clauses.
