Employment Contract (junior employee)

A great team is essential to any successful business, and a comprehensive employment contract lays the foundation for employees to thrive.

Employment contracts set out the main terms of employment such as job title and salary, as well as finer details like place and hours of work, annual leave and notice periods. A company may have policies in place that are referred to in the contract, such as a sick leave policy, or, where this isn’t the case, details of such issues may be set out in the contract itself.

Employment contracts provide clarity and guidance for the responsibilities of both parties in a legally binding manner. They’re also important in the event of disputes, or raised questions over someone’s employment status.

Statutory rights and entitlements vary between employees, workers and consultants — and while an employment contract won’t provide definitive evidence that an individual is an employee, it will be useful evidence if needed.
