The Georgia employment contract legitimizes the paid role an employee will be taking on for its new employer. The contract recognizes whether the paid individual will be brought on as an hourly or salaried position. The agreement would also detail other benefits such as health insurance, paid time off, holidays, etc. The new employee may be subject to signing an NDA or non-compete agreement as well. Once both parties agree to each other’s terms, the contract will be signed, validated and the employment will then commence.
