This employment law guide explores the basics of employment contracts and handbooks and offers guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls.

The contract of employment sets out the employment rights, duties and responsibilities and will cover more than the initial signed document. The document that an employee first signs when offered the job will usually be a statement containing the main terms of employment.

A handbook is an important tool to allow employees to know what rules they work under but, also, what is required of them in the workplace. Issuing company handbooks upon commencement of employment allows employees to access this information immediately and to refer back to it at a later date.
