Employment Contract

A contract of employment is an agreement between an employer and employee and is the basis of the employment relationship. As soon as a job offer is accepted, a contract exists and a number of rights and duties arise on both sides.  Job offers are often made subject to obtaining satisfactory references.

Your employer must provide you with a written statement of your main terms and conditions of employment within two calendar months of your start date.

Not all terms are explicitly agreed in writing (express terms). The courts have established that all employment contracts have the following implied terms:

  • to maintain trust and confidence through co-operation
  • to act in good faith towards each other
  • to take reasonable care to ensure health and safety in the workplace

Other implied terms can become part of the contract through custom and practice over time, or through your employer’s own rules.
