Employee Contract Template

Running a business is difficult. Who ever said it was easy? And then throw employees into the mix and you have got yourself a ticking time bomb!

You should eliminate as many unknowns as you can in your business if you want it to run as smooth as possible, make a profit and allow you to stay sane.

That is why it is important that you engage your team correctly and ensure that you have a contract between your business and them.

The Importance of a Employment Contract

This document is important. It spells out in detail what both parties are liable for and what occurs should there be any disagreements.

Let’s face it, running a business is hard work.

If you have employees, it gets even harder. Protect yourself, your business and your team by using this employment contract template.

4 Possible Scenarios that Could Happen

The last thing you need when running a business is major problems with your staff. It is tough enough already without having to engage in a dispute with your team members.

If the relationship turns sour, it gets even uglier. Here are 4 common disasters waiting to happen if you have employed your team without an employment contract.

1. There is a Misunderstanding

There is a misunderstanding about the amount of salary and superannuation to be paid. You thought they agreed to include the superannuation in their salary and they thought you said it wasn’t included.

Either way, you are in for one good argument if they have already started work with you. In fact, if you have an argument about this first off – it is unlikely that the relationship would last.

Ensure there is no misunderstanding and get the details written in an employee contract agreement.

2. Not What You Expected

Your new employee starts work. It goes well for a week. Then you find they are browsing the internet in-between their work.

Do you accept this?

If you haven’t put the specifics in your employee contract agreement, they have already tried to push the boundaries of your authority.

Ensure there is no misunderstanding and get the details written in an employee contract agreement.

3. It turns Ugly

They want to terminate their position and leave your business. You need someone to do the work, however, if they stay they are starting to influence your other staff negatively. You decide it isn’t going to work – but what are the rules for removing that team member?

How much are they expecting you to pay them out?

Ensure there is no misunderstanding and get the details written in an employee contract agreement.

4. They do something Illegal

Do you turn a blind eye or do your standards enforce them to be fired? What are your standards for your business?

Ensure there is no misunderstanding and get the details written in an employee contract agreement.

You can see that it is important that you have an employee agreement contract and that the finer details are included in this contract to avoid disputes, ensure you don’t waste your precious time arguing and allow you to get on with running your business.

Do you really have time to engage in a dispute with an employee which then could potentially turn into litigation?
