A Florida employment contract agreement is a document that establishes the framework of an employment relationship between an employer and an employee. Not all jobs/positions require a formal legal agreement, but a contract can be beneficial to both parties by clearly defining the terms of the employee’s position while protecting the employer’s business interests. Provisions such as income, period of employment, duties, benefits, confidentiality, non-compete, and termination may be integral components to a contract, depending on the position in question for which the employer is hiring the employee. It’s crucial that both parties understand and agree to all terms and conditions drafted in the contract as this contract is legally binding once signed.
