The Arizona employment contract is between an employer and an employee stating the pay, benefits, hours, term, confidentiality, and any other details of their employment with the organization. The employee’s holidays and sick days will be determined by if they are considered a salary or per hour ($/hr) employee. An employer, as long as the company is not in the “broadcast” industry including television and radio, may subject the employee to non-compete restrictions if they should leave the company. In addition, the employer may also prohibit the employee from sharing any business information or trade secrets with any related business or competitor. After the employment contract is signed by both parties it becomes legal in Arizona, no witnesses or notary public is required.
