What is an Employment Agreement?

An employment agreement is a contract that defines the rights and responsibilities of both employer and employee in a business relationship.

This document covers what is expected of both parties, and offers protections for both you and your employee should things not go as planned.

When should I use an Employment Agreement?

Use this agreement when you’re bringing a new employee on to the team to set out the terms of their employment, or when renegotiating the terms of someone already on your team.

This agreement can be used for employees on a full-time, part-time, or casual basis.

Frequently Asked Questions

The parties involved are the employer and employee.

Generally you would need this document when entering into an employer-employee relationship.

It applies to full-time, part-time, and casual employees.

Once you get your document, it’s yours. You are free to modify it and use it again if you wish. For instance, if you bring on another employee under very similar facts and circumstances, you can use your employee agreement document again.

However, no two employment arrangements are exactly alike. You may prefer to create a new agreement that caters specifically to that new employee. Different laws apply to full-time, part-time and casual employee agreements,  so it’s important to be covered with each new hire.

There are several signing options available. How you sign largely depends on where the parties are located and if they will attend signing together. You can print on paper and sign, or use electronic signature tools such as Docusign or Hellosign.
