Benefits of Employment Contracts
The relationship that exists between the person employed and the employer is contained in a contract. We also have tribunal courts that will look into cases that occur as a result of the contracts being followed. It is a common practice for the employers to enter into agreements with the employees so that they can start an employer and employee relationship. The employee and the employer has to be in a written agreement, and both have to sign the contract. Some of the employers will ignore this and agree on a verbal agreement with their employees they, therefore, do not finalize with the terms of employment in a written form or an employment contract.
The business operations and also the employee responsibilities can change with time. When this happens and there is no written contract, there might be an oversight of these changes, but when there is a written contract this information has to be incorporated into the contract. When there is a written contract the terms of employment are clearly and unmistakably highlighted to ensure that both parties are quite aware and understand their main responsibilities, obligations and duties under the contract of agreement. The contract starts to work immediately it is signed by both parties. The contracts of employment also referred to as the common law contracts consists of the following.
It includes the terms and conditions that have been agreed on between the employee and the employer that they both have to abide with so that they can work smoothly. 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. Some are the requirement that an employer should have and so they are included in the contract
