A Connecticut employment contract allows an employer to specify the responsibilities and job details of a new employee. The completed form will include a description of the employee’s duties, the details of their wage or salary, and whether they are employed part-time or full-time. The company policies regarding vacation time, work benefits, employee confidentiality, and the maximum allowable frequency of absences before termination of the agreement are also disclosed in the document.
Executing an employment contract ensures the rights of both parties are protected and a violation of the agreement may result in legal action from the other party.
