A good employment contract also clearly states the termination date of employment among many other aspects of the employment agreement. The termination clause is one of the most important elements of the employment contract. Most companies seek to be able to terminate an employee for “cause”. Defining “cause” helps to ensure that an employer doesn’t reward an employee for undesirable behavior. A company should not be liable to compensate an executive for incompetent, illegal, or immoral behavior. Reasons for terminating an employee for cause include but are not limited to lying about previous professional accomplishments or employment history when applying for the position. An executive employee should also not be able to behave in public in such a was as to embarrass the company or damage the company’s hard-earned reputation.
