A formal understanding is the most important form of document for any prospective employee or employer. The understanding, formalized as an agreement may include a full-time or a part time arrangement. To encapsulate the entire extent of this understanding, the employment contract works as a legal document which includes all the rights, duties, responsibilities and employment terms and conditions. It forms the legal relationship between the employer and employee. Everything which is written in the contract is legally binding on both parties. The type of contract depends on the employment status of the employee. This contract will be drafted, complete with pension benefits, employee’s salary, holiday entitlement, sick leaves etc. and other specifications. Clear terms and conditions along with being sure of the objective of a written understanding in the form of a contract is extremely necessary for both the parties as adjudication upon the same becomes clear and less ambitious in case of a litigation.
As it can be appreciated, time taken for contract drafting depend largely on the complexities of the subject matter covered. But on an average, we conclude the process within 04 to 07 working days.
The contract will include the Commencement Date, Work Duration, Trial Period, Details about the Pay, Employee’s Duties, Pay Period, etc.
The court which will have jurisdiction in the area in which the place of employment is located.
