A Hawaii employment contract agreement is a legal document binding an employer and employee to predetermined terms and conditions. This type of agreement is most often used when an employer is hiring a high-level or highly-valued employee, an individual who will only agree to the job/position if certain guarantees are provided in writing. An employment contract can include terms outlining the length of employment, amount of pay, duties/responsibilities, how employee/employer can/cannot terminate employment, non-disclosure of confidential information, and non-compete clauses. Provisions may be negotiated by both parties depending on specific interests and the type of employment in question.
