Ohio Employment Agreement

One of the main types of employment contracts comes at the end of the worker`s employment. When an employer sends an employee, he can propose a severance pay agreement which is itself a kind of employment contract. It is a penalty. Lump-sum indemnification clauses are not necessarily a common practice, but such provisions are worth noting here, as they were not taken directly in Ohio as part of a breach of the non-compete obligation.
