An employment contract is an agreement whereby a worker undertakes to perform a task or work for an employer in exchange for remuneration. As soon as an employer hires a worker, there is an employment contract.
The employment contract may be verbal or written. However, a written employment contract is recommended. It helps to avoid misunderstandings by clarifying, among other things, the working conditions, the duration of the contract and the tasks the worker will have to perform.
We make an employment contract template available to employers who wish to use a written employment contract with their staff. A contract may vary depending on the company’s situation or the worker’s status.
An employment contract must comply with the laws governing employment. Otherwise, it has no value, even if the worker and the employer are in agreement.
