An Employment Contract is an agreement between an employer and an employee.
There are many advantages to having a comprehensive Contract of Employment beyond the basic written terms required under law.
- A contract gives both you and your employee certain rights and obligations.
- It will ensure that you are fully compliant with legislation and will protect your business from exposure.
- A Contract of Employment gives clarity regarding roles and responsibilities and is a valuable document at times of workplace conflict or dispute.
- Most importantly a written Contract will clarify and outline the relationship between employee and employer to prevent any misunderstandings.
