Employment Contracts

Having enforceable employment contracts is one of the most important aspects of your employment relationship. Without proper employment contracts, companies risk exposing themselves to liability, and employees may be entitled to additional damages if dismissed. An employment lawyer can assist in reviewing and drafting enforceable contracts.

Often companies hire employees without drafting or signing agreements, causing more trouble than benefits.

Continual updates to employment agreements and handbooks to reflect the business realities of the employment relationship are highly effective. Still, it is important to execute contracts carefully and with full regard to your employees’ rights.

Effective employment relationships give companies room to grow along with the talent that they recruit along the way. This requires the establishment of expectations between employers and employees. Such expectations will leave room for the employment relationship to evolve while ensuring that it does in a mutually beneficial direction.

Employment Contracts and business

Smart companies make sure they have contracts that minimize their liability in case they decide to terminate an employee. This is an ongoing process as laws and business realities are constantly changing. The lack of proper structure causes most employers to find themselves at the Human Rights Tribunal or in courts.

Employers should carefully review these documents to ensure that they are enforceable. If the contract contains termination clauses, they must be reviewed to make sure that they comply with the ESA. A properly drafted contract will protect both the employer and the employee. This is especially important if an employer wishes to avoid lawsuits in the future. Having a good employment contract is important for protecting your company’s interests and employees’ rights. An employment lawyer can help you draft a contract that meets the needs of both parties and provides legal support when it is necessary.

If you are a company, do not give employment contracts to employees without proper review and drafting from an experienced employment lawyer.
