The West Virginia employment contract agreement is used when establishing employment conditions that will be implemented on an individual rendering a service for payment. The contract consists of a job description which includes the employee’s wage, the period of employment (specified duration or indefinite), responsibilities, rights, and employee benefits, amongst other things. Defining an employer’s terms through a contract agreement provides proof of the employee’s compliance with the predetermined conditions. If necessary, an employer may reference the contract to defend themselves against an employee in court should a dispute ever arise.
