Employment contracts

Ensure your employment contracts are straightforward and valid. Our common law contract templates will help give you certainty that the terms of engagement are clear for both you and your employees. Employment contracts are legally binding documents. Because breaches to workplace law can be costly to businesses in terms of both money and reputation, it pays to get employment contracts right from the outset. Request for a contract template to be emailed to you today.

Our team will guide you through every step in the employment agreement process, including:

  • Providing contract templates
  • Meeting minimum employment conditions
  • Reviewing other documents such as HR manuals, policies and procedures

Call our workplace relations team on 03 8662 5222, or email the team to discuss your needs.
