Employment contracts are beneficial for both employers and employees as they detail the conditions and benefits and protect the rights of all parties involved. Whether it is an executive position, a secretarial position, short-term employment or hiring the services of an independent contractor, an employment contract sets out the key elements of the relationship and agreement between the parties.

An employment contract will contain important details such as job description, responsibilities, remuneration, hours of work, leave entitlements, sick leave, restraint of trade, notice and termination. In this way employment contracts reduce the risk of grey areas and act as an insurance policy for both the employer and the employee. You don’t want confusion, misclassification or liability because your employment contracts were not properly drafted.

Employment contracts are important documents that may need to be referred to in the event of dispute resolution. It makes sense to have these documents properly drafted and formulated by legal and labor law professionals such as Adelson Law.

Employment contracts should also be used when you work with independent contractors. They may well be a special kind of employment or work agreement, but independent contractor documents can offer the peace of mind that your interests are protected.

Employment carries a certain amount of risk and as employer you need to minimize your risk. When it comes to labor law and disputes, employment contracts will reduce your risk when disputes arise. Hibbing proper employment contracts and the services of a professional labor law firm can often make the difference between winning or losing in labor law suits and disputes.
