The Pennsylvania employment contract agreement is a written document used by an employer to negotiate working conditions. Depending on the nature of employment, the employer may wish to prepare an agreement for an employee, independent contractor, or a subcontractor hired to perform their particular set of skills (e.g., roofing, electrical, plumbing). The agreement should specify general information such as the individual’s pay, responsibilities, and whether the job will expire after a designated date or once an obligation has been satisfied. However, the agreement can also define more complex matters like the consequences of releasing confidential information or trade secrets to competing organizations.
