  • Employment Contract

    Also known as an ‘employment agreement’, an employment contract is an agreement between an employer and employee about the terms and conditions of employment. Every employee must have their own written employment contract, whether it be an individual agreement or collective agreement.

    An employment contract cannot offer less than the legal minimum rights (i.e. wages, benefits and safe working conditions) or trade off the minimum rights for other things. Depending on the type of agreement and employee, the terms and conditions of the contract may be negotiated in good faith with help from a union member.
