Montana employment contracts are written agreements between employers and employees that establish their working relationship. On the document, the employer will specify the responsibilities of the employee’s position, the amount of financial compensation, and the duration of employment. Furthermore, if the employee is being given any benefits, paid vacation, or sick days, these should also be stated in the contract. These contracts may be used for general employees, contractors, or subcontractors. The employer can also include additional non-disclosure and non-compete clauses to prevent the employee from sharing trade secrets and working in direct competition with the employer.
