The document must include the job title and the period of employment, as well as the frequency and amount of financial compensation. All employee benefits such as bonuses, commissions, days off, health benefits, and paid expenses should also be listed in the contract. The employer may also include non-disclosure and non-compete clauses in the agreement (described below). Both parties must sign the form where indicated.
