A Virginia employment contract is used during the hiring process to institute the terms and conditions of a particular employment position. While the agreement’s primary purpose is to relay employee responsibilities and pay, it also details company benefits, days off, confidentiality, and whether the proposed job is subject to a probationary period. If the employer and prospective employee find the contract terms suitable, they may sign the form to put the agreement into effect and establish a formal working relationship.

Employer-employee relationships continue to evolve well after the initial hiring process, like when an employee is rewarded with a raise or promotion. To update the agreement terms, the parties must authorize the changes in writing and attach the amendments to the employment contract.
