Pittsburgh Employment Contracts Attorney
Employment Contracts are used to define the scope and rights of an employer-employee relationship. They may not be needed for every kind of employee, but for any position of importance it is crucial to have an Employment Contract in place.
An Employment Contract spells out important rights and duties of both the employer and employee. Things like salaries or pay rate, employee benefits, behavior and conduct, job description and how termination of employment can occur are often found in these contracts. Sometimes non-disclosure covenants and non-compete clauses may also be included in an Employment Contract.
Employment Contracts protect both the employer and the employee. The employers can make sure that their business is protected by defining what an employee can or cannot do. The employees are protected by having things such as their salary and benefits guaranteed, and to have their job secured by making sure that termination of their employment can only occur in a specific manner(such as requiring an employer to give 3 weeks’ notice before termination) or for specific reasons(such as misconduct) so that they are secure in their employment and cannot be taken by surprise.
Employment Contracts can also help an employer make sure that their employee handbooks and rules of behavioral conduct are enforceable. Many employers have employee handbooks and rules of conduct which are not legally enforceable.
