A contract is an agreement between two or more parties. Whether it is verbal or written it is legally binding. You don’t need to have written contacts but you do need to let your staff know their basic terms and conditions in a written statement. A contract, however, can save a lot of heartache, time and trouble especially when there is conflict.
MAKE YOUR EXPECTATIONS CLEAR IN A CONTRACT
Taking on their first employee, an accounting firm wanted to ensure that the expectations of the business were clear. Embrace HR listened to their requirements and drafted an employment contract which included information required in a written statement of employment particulars as well as the company’s own requirements.
FREELANCERS OR SELF-EMPLOYED SHOULD ALSO HAVE CONTRACTS
A company won a lucrative contract. They did not have enough people with the specific skills required and decided to take on a freelancer. Embrace HR delivered a contract for services for them which ensured that both the freelancer and the company were clear about their working relationship.
