An Illinois employment contract is used to hire a new employee and establish their role, responsibilities, and compensation. The agreement should also stipulate if the employee is entitled to any benefits, vacation time, and personal leave. If the employer will compensate for out-of-pocket expenses, or if the hiree will be presented with an ownership stake in the company, the contract can be used to detail these terms as well.

Some companies provide specialized training to their employees, divulging valuable trade secrets in the process. If the employer wishes to protect these secrets from competitors, they may require that the employee agrees to the non-compete and confidentiality clauses in this document. Before signing, the hiree should ensure they understand the agreement’s provisions fully.
