Use on_change function.

In python file:

_columns = {
        'name': fields.many2one('hr.employee', "Employee", required=True),
        'wage_amt': fields.float('Wage', digits=(16,2), required=True, help="Basic Salary of the employee"),

    def onchange_employee_id(self, cr, uid, ids, employee_id, context=None):
        v = {}
        if employee_id:
            contract_sr = self.pool.get('hr.contract').search(cr, uid, [('employee_id','=',employee_id)], context=context)
            if contract_sr:
                contract_br = self.pool.get('hr.contract').browse(cr, uid, contract_sr, context=context)[0]
                v['wage_amt'] = contract_br.wage

        return {'value': v}

In XML file:

<field name="name" on_change="onchange_employee_id(name)"/>
<field name="wage_amt"/>
