Frequently asked questions

Are you legally entitled to a contract of employment?

While there is no legal requirement for a contract, working without a contract puts the employer and the employee at risk. To avoid confusion, misunderstandings and legal disputes, we recommend using employment contracts for every member of your team.

Do employment contracts hold up in court?

Yes. A signed employment contract is legally binding, provided the contents of the employment contract are fair and both parties understand what they are signing. Remember that employers and employees can be found to be in breach of their contract, so it’s important to protect your business interests with a clear and well-written employment contract.

What should an employment contract include?

At the very minimum, the employment contract should include the employer’s name, the employee’s name, job title, a description of the work, the start date and the salary. Many contracts also include information about illness procedures and sick pay, other paid lead, notice periods and restrictive covenants.

What constitutes a breach of employment contract?

This will depend on the contents of the employment contract. Both the employer and the employee are capable of a breach of contract, so it’s important to understand the contents of your employment contracts and what your employees expect of you.
