A contract of employment is an agreement between an employer and employee that lays out the rights of the employee, dictating what they are entitled to and what they are not allowed to do and what could see their contracted terminated.
Typically, a written contract of employment sets out rights and obligations, including the right to work in a safe place and to receive minimum notice periods. Some terms are also automatically included, whether written or not, because they are implied by statute or practice over time.
It is vital that when you are given your contract of employment that you read through the terms and conditions carefully as contracts are known to reduce disputes and any ambiguity about an employee’s relationship with an employer.
