The Tennesee employment contract legally recognizes the services an employee is providing for an organization or a single member employer. The contract 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.
