What should be in an employment contract?

An employer must allow you to take away an employment agreement, and to seek advice on its terms prior to signing the agreement. A solicitor can provide advice on any areas of concern or any areas that require clarification.

The employment contract needs to be in writing and signed by you and your employer. The agreement needs to include:

  • names of the employer and the employee
  • description of work to be performed by you
  • indication of where you need to perform the work
  • indication of the arrangements relating to the times/hours you need to work
  • the wages or salary
  • redundancy clause
  • a plain language explanation of the services available for the resolution of employment relationship problems
