Rock Springs, employment contracts between an employer and employee legally bind them to certain conditions in their work relationship. In Wyoming, many 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 also 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 wages, length of employment (or if it at will) and grounds for termination or advancement. Contracts might also contain less commonly used clauses. First, arbitration clauses require parties to give up their rights to sue in court for any type of employment dispute.

Also, 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. Thirdly, non-compete clauses and confidentiality clauses make the information or work obtained or completed by contract employees subject to certain rules.
