Employment agreements, also known as employment contracts, vary from employer to employer, but oftentimes possess certain commonalities. Generally, duties of the employee, terms of the employment, and payment are addressed. Past these three things employee contracts may include:

  • disciplinary actions that may be taken towards employees if they do not act in accordance with the terms of employment; and
  • a non-compete clause that prevents a former employee from using secrets of the business against it.

Other issues may be laid out in the employee agreement as well and it is important to read it carefully so that you know your rights and what is expected of you.
