The South Carolina employment contract establishes the employment of a new hiree for a business or employer. The wage (hourly/salary) and other benefits will be variant on the type of role. In taking preventative measures to protect the entity, the employer could possibly issue and require non-disclosure agreements. Once terms on both ends are agreed and met, then employment can begin.
