What is an Employment Agreement?

An Employment Agreement is a Contract setting out the terms of employment between the employer and the employee. An Employment Contract comes into existence whenever the prospective employee accepts a position offered by the employer, whether there is a written agreement or not.

Why is it important to have a written Employment Agreement?

It is imperative to put the terms of an agreement into writing to ensure that both parties are aware of their respective rights and obligations arising from the employment relationship and to avoid potential disputes in the future. In the absence of a written Employment Agreement, the court will have to determine what the parties intended when they entered into an agreement.
