Duration of Employment
The employment can be "at will", for a specific time period, or for an unspecified duration terminable only "for cause". An "at will" employment allows termination of employment at the employer's sole discretion, for cause or for no cause at all. Employment for a specific time period (or a specific project duration) is self-explanatory. If the employment is for an unspecified duration and not "at will", it is normally interpreted as allowing termination only "for cause", meaning for misconduct or a business necessity such as downsizing.
The duration of the employment is:
"at will", and may be terminated for no cause whatsoever.
unspecified, and may be terminated "for cause" only.
(describe the time period or project duration)
For (i.e.,: "a period of twelve months" OR "as long as Employer has the XYZ contract") Do not capitalize first word or use end-of-the-sentence punctuation.
A Trade Secrets Clause contains provisions forbidding the Employee from revealing any of Employer's confidential information, including the identity of customers, contents of files, or formulas and patents used by Client. Would you like to include a Trade Secrets Clause in this Agreement?
An Arbitration Clause provides that disputes between the Employee and Employer will be settled by an Arbitrator in an Arbitration hearing, rather than via a lawsuit in a court of law. A plus for arbitration is that it may be cheaper than litigating in court. A minus in arbitration is that large attorney's fees may still be incurred, and appeal rights are severely curtailed as opposed to court actions. Do you want the Employment Agreement to include an Arbitration Clause?
An attorney's fees provision provides that, in the event any legal action is taken to enforce the provisions of this contract, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover their attorney's fees from the other party. Do you want this Agreement to contain an attorney's fees provision?
Provide the following information about the place where this Agreement will be signed:
Enter the name and position of the person who is signing this agreement on behalf of Employer. For example, John Smith, President. .
