Gillette, 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. Some clauses are less common but still worthy of being noted. First, the contract might include an arbitration clause which requires that parties forgo going to court over an employment dispute.
Second, 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, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to particular rules.
