The West Virginia employment contract recognizes and establishes a new business relationship between an employer and its employee. If the employment is longterm then other benefits can be discussed and implemented in the agreement. The employer can administer non-disclosure and/ or non-competes in order to protect the company’s trade secrets and livelihood. Once both parties come to an agreement and sign, employment can begin.
