Michigan Employment Contract Templates (4)

Updated November 21, 2023

The Michigan employment contract agreement is a document that an employer will use to define the terms of the position for which an employee is hired. In addition to the job title, responsibilities, and financial compensation, the contract should specify the period of employment covered by the contract. If the employee is being given any benefits, such as health benefits, paid leave, paid expenses, bonuses, and days off, they must be written into the agreement. The employer can also include non-disclosure and non-compete agreements to prevent the employee from sharing company information and working with competing businesses.
