The California employment contract links an employer and employee and states the pay, benefits, hours, confidentiality, and any other specificity in regards to the employment with the business. The worker’s sick days and holidays are discussed as well as whether or not the employee will be paid by salary or hourly ($/hr). As long as the company is not in the “broadcast” industry, the hired hand could be subjected to non-compete agreements if the employee and employer choose to part. Management may also restrict the distribution of internal information in regards to the company. Once the employment contract is finalized it becomes legal in California, no notary public or witnesses are needed.
