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;
  • Confidentiality;
  • 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.
