Louisiana employment contracts are documents that outline the work agreement between an employer and an employee. The employee’s wages, payment schedule, duration of employment, and any vacation pay/benefits must all be outlined within the agreement. Furthermore, the employer may request the employee to agree to a non-disclosure and/or non-compete agreement. Having a written contract gives both parties security and methods of recompense in the event that the other person does not fulfill their obligations.
