Reading the Fine Print: What to Know About Your Business Contract

Drawing up a Contract

When the company of your dreams offers you an employment contract, your first instinct might be to skip the legalese and sign it. Skimming a contract should be the last thing you do, reading it carefully and asking questions could save you a lot of grief later.

Questions to Ask

An employment contract is normally written in a way to protect the business. Here are a few things you will want to make sure to ask and solidify before signing.

  • Are you receiving job security? Determine if you are an at-will or fixed-term employee in your contract. What exactly is your job description?
  • Start and End dates are defined.
  • What are causes for termination?
  • What compensation or benefits will you receive?
  • What will happen to your contract if the company will be sold?

Determining all of these variables will give you peace of mind during your time at the company.
