Your employment contract sets out the terms and conditions of your new job, which include your pay, your hours of work, leave entitlements and many other details. Signing it indicates that you and your employer have agreed to abide by these terms.However, there are legally enforceable minimum terms and conditions that all contracts must include, and some clauses may have implications down the track in your career (such as non-competitive clauses, or clauses relating to intellectual property rights). It’s very important that you know your contract adheres to all minimum requirements, and that you understand the implications of any other clauses it contains.
Before you sign on the dotted line take advantage of our free employment contract review service. One of our experts will check the minimums, and explain the implications of all the clauses and conditions to you. Knowing exactly what your contract does and doesn’t contain gives you peace of mind.
