Employment Contract

What is an Employment Contract?

An employment contract or agreement is a signed document that explicitly lists the conditions of employment. Unlike offer letters, an employment contract creates a binding promise between the employee and employer. For instance, an employer might write an employment contract that requires the employee to perform at a predefined level in order to stay employed. Employment agreements do not usually include “employment at will” statements.
