The Maine employment contract is a written agreement between an employer and an employee that specifies the conditions of employment and the amount of compensation. Having a written contract ensures that both parties will uphold their end of the agreement. It also protects them in the event that either party breaks the agreement or pursues litigation. The period of employment, frequency and amount of payment, benefits, and paid leave (if applicable) must all be detailed within the document. If the employer deems it necessary, they may also include non-disclosure and non-compete clauses to legally dissuade the employee from sharing insider information and competing against the employer.
