Employee Agreement specifies terms and conditions of employment of an employee in the organization he is or will be working for. Employment Agreement is a contract commonly entered into when a business hires a new employee. It can be used for a range of different employment types, including full time, part time and fixed term or Contract.
This Agreement sets out all of the terms of employment, including job duties, salary and benefits, work hours, confidentiality, annual leave and various other key terms.
In many cases, once an employer chooses to take on a new employee, the parties want to get started without delay. The employer may, therefore, wish to first provide the employee with a letter which spells out some of the key terms more briefly. In these situations, employers may wish to use a Letter of Offer for Employment, and then to follow it up with this Employment Agreement.
An Employment Agreement is not always suitable for use by contractors. The contractors are recommended to use another legal agreement called Service Agreement.
