A South Carolina employment contract agreement is used to establish employment terms for an employee’s tenure in a hired position. The employer should clearly outline the individual’s job title, salary, schedule, rights, responsibilities, and any duties which must be fulfilled in order to receive payment. Should the individual fail to meet the employer’s terms or otherwise breach the contract, the employer will have the authorization to terminate their employment and, if necessary, seek legal restitution. The agreement should be reviewed and signed at the start of the working relationship to ensure that both parties understand the conditions of employment.
