Employment Agreements: Considerations for Independent Schools During the Hiring Season


It’s the time of year when independent schools ask current faculty to commit to teach for another school year, make the decision not to have them return, and extend job offers to new members of the school community.

How does this annual tradition square with the notion of at-will employment? Does your school employ faculty and staff at-will? Or do you use a contract for a specified term? Further, do your agreements contain expectations that teaching will be in-person for next year? Are you addressing immunizations, or the possibility of school closure, remote learning, or other enrollment contingencies?

Join Brian Garrett, Chair of McLane Middleton’s Education Law Group, and Vineesha Sow as they discuss with business officers and other school leaders the distinctive way in which independent schools employ faculty and staff, and provide a process of codifying the essentials in employment arrangements.
