What Goes Into a Valid Employment Contract?

A valid employment contract is a legally enforceable document that describes the terms and conditions of an employer's and employee's professional relationship. To be enforceable under Arizona law, it must be written and signed by both parties.

 Key elements typically included in a valid employment contract are:

  • Parties Involved: The contract should explicitly identify the employer and employee parties involved.
  • Terms of Employment: This includes the nature of the job, scheduled or working hours, expectations, and any specific duties and responsibilities of the job.
  • Compensation Details: The contract should clearly state the type and amount of compensation, whether it's a wage, salary, or commission. It may also include details about bonuses, raises, or other incentives.
  • Duration of Employment: For fixed-term contracts, the start and end dates should be specified. In the case of permanent contracts, there's typically no end date.
  • Benefits: Details about benefits such as health insurance, vacation time, retirement plans, etc., should be included if applicable.
  • Termination Conditions: The conditions under which the contract can be terminated by either the employer or the employee should be outlined. This could include notice periods and grounds for dismissal.
  • Dispute Resolution: The contract may also include a clause detailing how disputes related to the contract will be resolved.
  • Confidentiality or Non-Disclosure Agreements: If applicable, these agreements protect sensitive company information.

How Does a Breach of Contract Occur?

 A breach of employment contract happens when either the employer or the employee fails to fulfill their contractual obligations. It essentially means failing to follow the contract's agreed-upon terms and conditions.

 From an employer's perspective, a few common examples of breaches could include:

  •  Non-Payment of Wages: If an employer does not pay wages as agreed upon in the employment contract
  • Unlawful Reduction of Staff Pay: An employer cannot arbitrarily reduce an employee's pay
  • Wrongful Dismissal: If an employer terminates an employee without proper cause or notice, when such conditions are explicit in the contract
  • Changes to Working Hours: If an employer changes an employee's working hours without their consent, especially if the contract stipulates specific working hours,
  • Violation of Non-Compete or Non-Solicitation Agreements: If an employer enforces a non-compete or non-solicitation agreement that goes beyond what is reasonable or lawful

It's important for employers to understand their obligations under an employment contract to avoid potential legal issues related to contract breaches.
