Philadelphia Employment Contract Attorneys
An employment contract provides a legal agreement between you and your employer defining obligations of both parties for providing, accepting and continuing employment with compensation aspects clearly identified.
This agreement may specify a period of time or identify the employment as “at will,” meaning terminable by either party at any time for any or no reason at all, even arbitrarily. Seniority and good performance do not matter at all, unless there are specific policies being violated by the employer.
An employment contract can be as simple as an “Offer Letter,” after you receive and countersign it. However, in the absence of a definite term of employment such as a term of years being agreed upon, an employee is presumed to be employed “at will,” as would otherwise be the case.
