Draft a contract of employment

Key points

  • Employers should be aware that the contract of employment is the legal foundation of the employment relationship.
  • Before drafting a contract, the employer should consider which clauses are needed, based on the appropriate standard terms for the role and anything already agreed with the prospective employee.
  • The employer should ensure that the contract terms are clear and unambiguous and that they accurately reflect the intentions of the parties.
