The specific details included in an employment contract may vary, but there are common elements typically found therein, including:
- Job Title and Description
Our employment agreement attorneys specify the job title and describe the employee’s responsibilities, duties, and expectations. This helps define the scope of the employment.
We will outline the start date of employment, the expected duration of the contract (if applicable), and any probationary periods to include details about whether the position is full-time, part-time, temporary, or permanent.
- Compensation and Benefits
Employment agreements clearly state the employee’s salary or hourly rate, payment frequency, and additional compensation structures such as bonuses or commissions and benefits like health insurance, retirement plans, and other perks.
Especially in today’s employment climate, these necessary contracts should indicate where employees are expected to perform their duties. This could be a specific office location, a remote work arrangement, or a combination of both.
- Leave and Vacation Policies
We will outline the company’s policies regarding vacation time, holidays, sick leave, and other types of leave and specify the procedures for requesting and approving time off.
- Termination and Notice Period
An employment contract must define the circumstances under which either party can terminate the employment relationship. Include the notice period required for resignation or termination and any severance packages or conditions.
- Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure, Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Clauses
Employment agreements must include provisions to protect the company or employee’s confidential information. Employees may be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, especially if they can access sensitive company information.
The contract will clarify ownership of any intellectual property the employee creates during employment and specify whether the company or the employee retains rights to inventions, designs, or other work-related creations.
If applicable, it will specify any restrictions on the employee’s ability to work for a competitor or solicit clients or employees from the company after the employment relationship ends.
- Code of Conduct and Policies
Outlining the company's code of conduct and policies and specifying that the employee is expected to adhere to these guidelines regarding ethics, use of company resources, and other workplace behavior expectations.
Employment contracts often include provisions for resolving disputes between the employer and employee, like mediation, arbitration, or other agreed-upon methods.
