Employment contracts

A contract of employment exists as soon as an applicant accepts your offer of a job.

A clear, reasonable contract helps ensure the employee understands what is expected and minimises the risk of disputes. At the same time, you need to understand what your contractual obligations are, and what terms you can (and cannot) enforce.
