DocuSign is an e-signature company which now offers additional products such as a contract lifecycle management platform, contract analytics, and a document generator for Salesforce.

An employment contract allows an employer to hire an employee. An employment contract specifies the rights and obligations of the employer and the employee. An employment contract will specify key information such as the employee's role, salary, work location, hours and holidays. An employment contract can also include special terms such as a probationary period, benefits and overtime payment terms.

It is not possible to create an employment contract with DocuSign. However, if you have your own employment contract, you can use DocuSign to e-sign it. However, you will not be able to tailor the template to your requirements within DocuSign. This must happen before using DocuSign. With DocuSign you also can't create an NDA and you will need to provide one before.
