WHAT ABOUT EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS?
 

EMPLOYMENT CONTRACTS

  • Permanent
  • Fixed term
  • Casual
  • Project base

Are you currently operating a business without employment contracts? Employment contracts are the heart of an employer-employee relationship and must therefore be done correctly. It may vary from employer to employer what type of employment contracts they may need and what type of employee they are looking for, from highly skilled to even under schooled employee. It may also vary from employer to employer what the need may be of a specific contract as there are so many industries. An employer in the construction industry may only require to appoint an employee for 6 months on a fixed term contract, or an employer may require the services of a temp on a casual basis or an employer wants to appoint a personal assistant on a permanent basis or an employer wants to appoint an independent contractor on an independent contractor agreement.
