All Or Nothing Agreement

Traditionally, Nevada courts have taken the latter approach by forgoing reform of parties` private contracts, including non-compete clauses, or “wearing a blue blue pencil.” Affaire Golden Road Motor Inn, Inc. Islam was an opportunity for the Nevada Supreme Court to join the number of jurisdictions that have adopted the doctrine. For various reasons, the Court objected. The first instance distinguished between the case-law and the salvatorial provisions invoked by the employee and found that the employer had not attempted, in the present case, to invoke or eliminate in any way the ineffective dismissal clause for an important reason. On the contrary, it invoked an effective and free termination clause on the terms on which the parties had agreed and attempted to enforce it. The first instance decided that the termination clause without notice was valid at the time of the conclusion of the contract and that it remained valid even after the termination of the employee. In the Islam case, it was a dispute between a casino worker and his former employer. The worker, who worked as a casino host for the former employer, entered into an agreement with the former employer not to work one (1) year after the termination of his employment with the former employer of another gaming facility within 150 miles of the former employer. After leaving his employment relationship with the former employer, the worker began working as a casino host for a new employer within a prohibited radius of 150 miles.

The former employer sued the employee to prevent his employment with the new employer. [10]. An employment contract must be interpreted as a whole and not by piece. The appropriate analytical approach is to determine whether the dismissal provisions in an employment contract as a whole are contrary to the ESA. Recognising the power imbalance between workers and employers and the protection of the ESA, the courts should focus on whether the employer has violated the worker`s ESA rights by limiting a worker`s common law rights in the event of dismissal. While the courts allow an employer to enforce a restrictive contract, they will not impose termination clauses that are illegal in whole or in part. In this analysis, it does not matter whether the termination provisions are or are separated in one place from the contract or whether the provisions are otherwise bound by their terms. In this case, the application judge erred because he did not read the termination provisions as a whole and instead applied a piecemeal approach without considering their combined effect. Before the first instance, the worker considered that the impratiability of the termination regime on which the contract was based made the entire contract – or at least the termination provisions – unenforceable and unenforceable. The employee argued that the ESA was remedial legislation and that the matter should be decided in a manner that would encourage the employer to comply with the law.

The employee was a 42-year-old sales manager with a total annual income of nearly $200,000. The employment relationship was governed by a written employment contract including, inter alia, the following provisions: the decision of the Court of Appeal probably did not affect the intention of the parties who agreed on a contractual agreement clearly providing for separate obligations and rights in the event of dismissal without notice and without cause. Moreover, the Court of Appeal`s emphasis on worker vulnerability in its analysis is contrary to the fact that the agreement in question was negotiated by a demanding senior executive with a considerable six-figure income. The former employer asked the Court of Justice to amend the excessive provisions of the non-competition clause in order to make the agreement enforceable. The Court rejected the arguments of the former employer and found that it was not within its competence to rewrite the parties` contract and that the courts did not have the power to conclude private agreements. The court said its reluctance to “take the pencil in hand” to amend the non-compete clause avoids flouting the parties` contractual intent to preserve judicial resources and keep the employer at a higher level as the author of the agreement. . . .
