… you are hiring a new employee on standard terms
Under an employment agreement, a company (employer) hires an employee who becomes part of its organization.
Employees enjoy a limited number of statutory rights and protections, for example the right to holidays and to a salary.
The standard employment agreement is a one-size-fits-all document which can be used for most employment relationships. It sets out the parties’ respective main rights and obligations, such as the employee’s title and duties or workload, and can easily be adapted.
While, in theory, it does not need to be made in writing, a number of important provisions (for example non-compete covenants) must be laid down in writing to be enforceable.
