A written employment contract can help to clarify an employee’s entitlements and responsibilities, and highlight relevant workplace policies and procedures from the get-go.
It’s not a requirement under the Fair Work Act to give an employee a written contract of employment but having one is best practice and can help resolve any potential disputes about pay and conditions.
Remember, a contract can’t provide for less than the legal minimums set out in the National Employment Standards and any applicable award or agreement.
Better Employment Contracts. Better Clarity.
