To be enforceable, an employment agreement (contract) must clearly define the rights and responsibilities of the employer and the employee, i.e., job duties, pay and length of employment term. An offer letter should not be mistaken for an employment agreement if it merely describes the employee’s job duties and the rate of pay. But, if the duration of the employment relationship is missing, there can be no enforceable contract. So if the document states that the employee may be terminated at the will of the employer. Enforceable agreements typically require confidentiality of the employer’s data, and sometimes clauses not to solicit and compete.
