Employee Agreement

Employment Agreement

An employment contract, also known as an employment agreement, is a document that outlines the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of the employer and employee. For example, this agreement usually contains information about wages, benefits, hours, and job responsibilities.

There are three types of employment contract templates for working employees:

Full Time: A full-time employee typically works more than 30 hours a week and receives benefits that other employees do not.

Part Time: A part-time employee typically works less than 30 hours a week with a guaranteed minimum working hours.

General: Casual workers do not have guaranteed minimum hours, but work as needed.

The two parties in an employment contract are the employer and the employee. Both parties should include their name (for a company or an individual) and contact information, and they should sign each agreement. A signed contract protects the interests of both employees and employers.

The terms set out in the agreement help an employer minimize any risks when hiring a new employee. For example, contracts often include terms (such as prohibited conduct) upon which an employer may terminate the employee without notice.

An employment contract also outlines an employee's rights, including compensation, working hours, benefits package, and vacation time. If an employer fails to provide a fair amount of compensation or working time, an employee can take legal action against them.
