Kentucky Employment Contract Templates (4)

Updated November 21, 2023

The Kentucky employment contract agreement is used to outline the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and employee. The document will specify the period of work, financial compensation, and any benefits that the employee is entitled to. Some employers may also wish to include non-disclosure and/or non-compete clauses, which ensure that the employee will not reveal trade secrets or use insider knowledge to compete against the employer. By making a written agreement, both parties may protect their interests and ensure that the other person will uphold their obligations.
