Designing and Administering Employment Contracts: Protecting the Working Relationship

Designing and Administering Employment Contracts: Protecting the Working Relationship

An employment contract forms the foundation of the employment relationship and should contain very specific information to ensure that there are no ambiguities between employer and employee regarding their respective rights, responsibilities, and obligations. In a world of uncertainty, employment contracts can be immensely valuable to employers, as well as employees, as they legally establish and define the working relationship, and outline key obligations, expectations, and entitlements.

But while having an employment contract is important, ensuring that it is legally enforceable and sufficiently mitigates your risk as an employer, is vital. This programme will explore key insights for managing contractual agreements, be it with new or existing personnel.
