Importance of Employment Contracts

It’s important for all employers to have well developed employment contracts for new hires. This helps to identify the employment criteria and structure of the job function for the new employee and can avoid a lot of headaches for the employer should the relationship sour at some point down the road.

The contract should also include confidentiality clauses, the importance of following health and safety policies and procedures, proper conduct, basic contents such as start date, vacation, hours, probationary periods and more. Seek out legal help before you hire so that you avoid potential employee-employer challenges in the future.
