Employment agreements (also known as contracts for service) set out the terms governing the relationship between an employer and an employee. Without a solid and comprehensive employment agreement in place, employers may find their business mired with ill-disciplined workers and frequent employment disputes.
It is important to know that an employer-employee relationship is not governed solely by the agreement between the parties. There is a body of employment law that will affect whether the agreement can be enforced in court.
That said, a well-drafted employment agreement will have taken such employment law principles into account.
