An employment contract is necessary when hiring any employee or consultant, whether part-time of permanent. It is a comprehensive document that addresses all terms and conditions governing employment, as well as the rights, duties and responsibilities of each party with respect to the other. Common points would include breakdown of salary, date of joining, notice period and non-compete clause.
Advantages of an Employment Agreement
Employment contracts protect the rights of both employers and employees. A specific, well-drafted clause in an employment contract can go a long way in avoiding ambiguity and minimising legal risks.
As with many other legal documents, the key advantage is psychological. Once an employee and employer sign a contract, it creates a feeling of respect for the terms it contains. The contract defines the expectations and responsibilities of both parties, ensuring that neither party will be treated arbitrarily in case an event discussed in the contract occurs.
