Employment contracts, including non-compete contracts, severance agreements, and confidentiality agreements, are legal agreements between an employer and employee. These contracts are critical to ensuring that both parties are protected, and are typically enforceable under contract laws, labor laws, and employment laws. Your individual contract is likely to have its own unique terms, conditions, and limitations. Your contract may be upheld in court, so long as it is found to be enforceable.
