Industrial Relations
Writing a Contract of Employment – Essential Features and Avoiding Pitfalls

​A contract of employment is a legally enforceable agreement under which the employer’s basic obligation is to pay wages or salary and the employee’s basic obligation is to provide service. A contract of service is made when the offer of employment by employer is accepted by employee. A number of rights and duties, enforceable through Courts, arise as soon as the contract of service comes into force.

This programme will address the essential features of contract of service and more importantly assist participants to avoid pitfalls in drawing up contract of service so that employers maintain flexibility in operating their business within the framework of the law. Changes occur in working relationship for many reasons and accordingly problems may arise in effecting the changes. An essential part of this programme will be to guide employers in managing changes and term of employment without breaching the contract of service.
