Employment Contracts

Introduction

One of the more preliminary aspects of the employment process is to determine whether an employment contract will be used, and if one is used, to ensure that the contract is legally enforceable. Because employment contracts are not required under California law, approaches to the contract can vary, and this section is designed to provide an overview of some key issues to consider when preparing and entering into an employment contract in California.

This section reviews such issues as the impact of a contract on at-will status, restrictive covenants, breach of contract, and the role of an employee handbook in creating a contract between the employer and employee. Making inadvertent statements and representations to employees regarding their employment may result in contractual obligations, and employers should be aware of the impact of their statements to employees.
