An Arizona employment contract agreement is a document used to create a legal bond between an employer and an employee. The agreement contains information on the employee’s job including duties, pay, benefits, and employment period, and also protects the employer through non-disclosure and non-compete clauses. Signing this type of document establishes a clear-cut relationship between employee and employer, ensuring that both parties remain privy to each other’s intentions and expectations. Although these contracts are more useful for employees with high-level jobs, they can be applied to any position of any job type (permanent employee, contractor, or subcontractor).
