A well drafted employment contract protects the commercial interests of your business, both during and after their employment. It is an agreement between the employee and employer that sets out the terms and conditions of employment. The National Employment Standards (NES) or the minimums set out in the applicable registered agreement (award or enterprise agreement) cannot be overruled within the employment contract.
These are some of the various employment contract matters that Coutts can assist with:
- drafting and negotiation of contracts;
- breaches of the employment contract;
