Employment Contracts

Employment contracts are legally binding agreements between employers and employees that outline the terms and conditions of the employment relationship. These contracts typically cover critical aspects such as job responsibilities, compensation, benefits, working hours, termination procedures, and other relevant terms. HR’s concern for employment contracts is rooted in ensuring legal compliance, reducing conflicts, and supporting talent management efforts, all of which are integral to a productive and successful workplace.
