The New Mexico employment contract agreement is an instrument put into effect by an employer upon the hiring of a new employee. In the contract, an employer is able to outline how the position shall be managed during the individual’s term of employment. The employer should establish the individual’s salary and, if applicable, any commissions, bonuses, and benefits afforded for the services they provide. Employers may also create non-compete or non-disclosure provisions which hold the employee accountable if they divulge company information or wrongfully transact business with other parties.
