An Oklahoma employment contract agreement  is a tool used by an employer to create terms for a transaction of services performed by a hired party. Outlined in the contract is the employee’s schedule, compensation for the services offered, their rights and responsibilities, as well as articles prohibiting them from disclosing trade secrets or initiating business transactions with competing organizations. With a contract agreement in place, the employer is protected in situations where the employee fails to adhere to the provisions of the contract or neglects to fulfill their appointed duties.
