Employment Contracts

Every employee employed after 1 October 2000 must have a written employment agreement (or contract). Furthermore, there have been several pieces of legislation which have been introduced since that date which require updating of the original agreements.

Employment Relations Consultants offer a number of services to employers in relation to employment contracts. We can:

  • Review your existing contract/s, identify any ambiguities or clauses which may be improved or, in some cases, are unlawful. Update the agreement/s and introduce all clauses necessary to comply with current legislation.
  • Discuss your requirements for new contracts, including position descriptions, pay schedules etc. Identify the key clauses for the protection of all parties and then guide the employer through his obligations to the employee in regard to the introduction of the agreement.
  • Provide advice on the best type of employment contract for a specific task.
