Employment Agreements

From 1 July  2011, employers are required to retain a signed copy of the employment agreement or the current terms and conditions of employment. The employer must retain the “intended agreement” even if the employee has not signed it. Employees are entitled to a copy on request.

There are some provisions that must be included in employment agreements by law, and there are also a number of minimum conditions that must be met regardless of whether they are included in agreements. Employment law also provides a framework for negotiating additional entitlements.

All employees must have a written employment agreement……and yes, this includes casual, fixed term, part time and full time employess. 

Employment agreements are often called employment contracts.
