What are Employment Contracts?

An employment contract is a written agreement, negotiated and signed by both employer and employee, that establishes the rights and obligations of the parties, along with the terms of employment (e.g., specific responsibilities and/or goals), including salary, benefits, length of employment, reasons for termination (relevant anti-discrimination laws apply to employees with contracts) and assigning rules for resolving disputes between the parties. Employees working under employment contractors are not at will employees. Because most employment contracts are entered into by executives, professionals and other individuals with special skills, the employee who signs an employment contract is always exempt from wage and hour rules under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
