Document Overview

An Employment Agreement sets out the terms, expectations, and responsibilities for employers when hiring a new employee. It is important to clearly document in writing the employment relationship between you and your full time employee. A clearly written employment agreement means your business can run smoothly and you can save time and money if a dispute arises.

The conditions of employment covered in the agreement or contract template include:

  • Position, duties, and hours of work;

  • Salary and additional benefits;

  • Probation period, notice period, and termination provisions;
