South Dakota employment contract is used by an employer to establish the rights and duties of a newly-hired employee. The document provides clarity to both parties regarding the employee’s work responsibilities, salary, schedule, and length of employment. It also contains provisions that prevent the employee from disclosing proprietary information and trade secrets to outside parties.

There is an important distinction between an “employee” and an individual who is “self-employed.” If the hired person is self-employed, they are technically an independent contractor who is not entitled to workers’ compensation, vacation days, or any other benefits afforded to employees.
