Every employment relationship is governed by a combination of documents, legislation, and implied rights.

These establish the rights and obligations of both parties. If an issue is not addressed in writing, the law will impose terms which may not be in the employer’s best interests. Organizations should ensure that they do not miss the opportunity to put terms in place that will allow them to operate efficiently while minimizing liability.

Employment contracts and policies form the bedrock of any good organization, without which an organization becomes chaotic.

Create your rules so your employees will know.
