Employment Agreement is a another term for employment contracts. By law, in the United Kingdom each employee must be given their basic terms and conditions of employment. When you examine the section with employment agreements be aware of the different options you might need to include in the employment package. For example the employment agreement can include the employment contract and job offer letter. There may also be a need for a compromise agreement or consultancy agreement depending on the type of employee you have hired.
The employment agreement is going to outline the specific job description for the temporary or permanent employee. For the permanent employee the contract will have clauses such as start date, pay terms, benefits, and termination issues. For example, you may have a pet care company. You have hired a cashier for the company. The employment agreement template will have a place for the name of the parties involved, the job title that person has, a description of the job title, the amount you have agreed to pay the new employee, and any benefits they might receive. You may list health, dental, and life insurance, as well as a retirement package. There is also a section regarding termination.
What would constitute a breach of the employment agreement? What terms and conditions must the employee follow to avoid termination? Is there a trial period for the permanent employee? All of these answers and more can be found in the employee agreement. Furthermore, the employment agreement is based on current 2002 laws for protection of employees in the workplace.
