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.
