A clear and well-drafted employment contract benefits both the employer and the employee by ensuring that both parties understand their responsibilities from the start and giving them the best chance of a positive working relationship.
A solid legal foundation will give the employee the peace of mind that they can rely on the benefits that have been promised by the employer and that, if the employer violates the terms of the agreement, the employee will have a clear right to enforce it.
It will be easier to avoid disputes if the contract is clear. A solid employment contract will outline what should happen in the event of a disagreement for both parties. This will help to resolve an issue through negotiation rather than going to court or an employment tribunal.
Employment contracts usually also contain a job description, which though not required by law, is a good practice that gives space for a more efficient and effective working relationship, allowing for a clear understanding of what is expected from you, as well as the criteria used to evaluate your performance.
