The importance of a clear employment agreement
When it comes to employing someone in your business, having a clear and clear agreement which has been read, understood and signed by both parties is paramount. This not only defines the relationship between the employer and the employee but also sets the expectations right from the start. An agreement may detail everything from the job title, remuneration, circumstances for termination, and confidentiality and non-compete obligations for employees during and following employment. It’s essential to ensure that both parties understand and agree to the terms set forth in the employment agreement.
