Legal: Effective Employment Contracts



The relationship between an employer and an employee is essentially a contract. Although the contract exists even if it is not put in writing, there are many good business reasons for setting out the rules of the employment in writing. For instance, disputes can be avoided and business interests can be protected by using written contracts to clearly express rules and obligations about important matters such as performance expectations, the use of confidential information and property, notice periods and post-employment conduct.

The employment law experts at AFEI Legal will show you examples of sound written contracts that address important and topical issues. You will receive practical tips and suggestions so that your business has effective employment contracts.
