Negotiating an Employment Contract

The employment contract sets forth the terms and obligations of the employer's relationship with the employee. Most employment contracts are negotiable. After signing the employment contract, the employee and employer are both bound under the terms of the contract. The employment contract often gives the employer some control over when they can terminate an employee. Similarly, an employment contract can provide the employee with a sense of job security if it is for a set term.
