Contract of employment
The individual employment contract is an essential tool governing the legal subordination between the employer and employee.
It provides for the following:
- Object of the contract (position held, duties, responsibilities);
- Duration (unspecified or fixed);
- Obligations of the employer and employee on the job;
- If necessary, non-competition and non-solicitation;
- Job termination.
Each element provided in the employment contract (or absent from it!) can have a significant impact on the employment relationship, both during the contract and upon termination.
Good writing, that is complete and accurate, could avoid legal trouble in the case of a dispute or of a disagreement on the employment relationship.
