Why Employment Contracts are Necessary

The relationship that exists between an employer and an employee is based on a law of contract, but unlike other types of agreement only some certain aspects of the contract of the employees are required to be in writing by the law. This has caused some disagreements, and this is why we have the tribunal claims. The practice of the employer and the employee signing a contract of agreement is a most common practice. These agreements are usually put in writing by the employer incorporating the terms and both the employer and employee have to mutually agree with the standard form, or with the negotiated terms that exist between both parties. The employers and the employees should enter into a written contract so that in a case of any changes in the working conditions, the contract can be amended and incorporated into the contract.

The operations of businesses can change, and if this happens, the information has to be captured into the contract. When changes occur in a business place, the employer and the employee has to ensure that the changes are captured in the written contract and then both parties to sign. The contract of employment enables both the employer and the employee to understand the terms and the conditions that they have to abide by so that they can create a conducive working environment. The contract starts to work immediately it is signed by both parties. The contracts are called a common law employment contracts.

It has the agreed terms between the employee and the employer. The terms that you have agreed on are included in the written contract.

There are employment laws that are supposed by law to be included in the contract agreement, these are also included. There are also other terms which are necessary to make the contract work.

An example is how the employees are supposed to act in good faith, and the employers have confidence and trust the employees. The contract terms are well highlighted in the contract for both parties to understand.

Employers are supposed to give the contracts to their employees. The contact information include all the personal information between the business and the employee.
