Employment Agreements

Employment Agreements are contracts between an employer and an employee to establish vital terms and conditions of employment, whilst still upholding the minimum standards set out within the National employment standards[1] and any applicable awards.[2]

These contracts can come in different forms whether that be for casual, permanent workers or for an independent contractor.

Employment contracts are imperative to have especially when not having one can mean a lack of protection for both parties involved, and an absence of a legally defined relationship between employer and employee. Which can leave you open to uncertainty and potentially litigation regarding various things such as obligations and benefits.
