The Tennesee employment contract legally recognizes the services an employee is providing for an organization or a single member employer. The arrangement goes in depth with the person’s job and expected quality and performance. Based on the position, the employee may be paid by hourly or be salaried. The agreement may involve non-disclosures in order to safe keep the employer’s trade secrets. When both parties agree and come to terms, employment can begin.
