Employment Contracts

Employment contracts or employment agreements govern the employment relationship between employers and their employees.

While many employees may be governed by modern awards and enterprise agreements, not all aspect of the employment relationship will be governed by such instruments leaving parties to the contract free to negotiate the inclusion of other suitable employment terms and conditions.

Senior management or executive employment contracts may also present difficulties for employers where confidentiality, post-employment restraints and protection of intellectual property rights need to be incorporated into employment contracts to provide the necessary protections for business.
