Make joining your team easy for interns, freelancers, and temporary and long-term employees. Create, sign, and store these work-related contract templates in Contractbook.

Imagine you're about to start a new job. (Exciting, right?) Just like GPS guides you through uncharted territory, an employment contract is your compass in the work world. 

Employment contracts aren’t just pieces of paper; they’re your ticket to clarity and security. Without a contract, you could end up working for free. Or worse, you could end up with legal issues on both sides of the employment fence that require serious litigation. 

Our work contract templates are versatile tools for HR and hiring teams that help streamline the hiring process and safeguard legal positions for employers and employees. They're not just handy for dispute resolution — they're proactive in minimizing conflicts altogether. 

Think of the time you'll save by having a reliable employment contract template at your fingertips, especially if you frequently onboard new team members. Thanks to customizable templates, repetitive information is automatically updated, making paperwork a breeze. This leaves you with more time to focus on what truly matters — the people.

What goes in an employment contract? 

  • Job information, title, and responsibilities: This defines the job and its name. It is also crucial to outline to whom the position holder reports. 
  • Benefits and compensation: In this section, outline what and how a person will be paid. Different contracts can be used depending on the employment structure — hourly, salaried, or fixed term. Include what benefits or bonuses a position holder is entitled to, even if not monetary. 
  • Time off, sick days, and vacation: This section includes a company's handling of time off or holidays and how it approaches employee sick days. 
  • Working hours: Employment contracts must include a position's office hours or what they would be like if someone worked remotely.  
  • Employment period: This section can also include the length of a person’s employment or whether it is on a rolling basis.
  • Confidentiality agreements or non-disclosure agreements: Finally, employment contracts should include how confidential information should be handled by employees and how confidential information is defined. 

When should you use a work contract? 

Whether hiring full-time staff, part-time workers, freelancers, or contractors, having a contract provides legal protection and allows for negotiating terms beneficial to both parties.

  • Reduces the risk of litigation in conflicts.
  • Clearly outlines employer expectations for duties.
  • Defines employee rights to conditions and payments.
  • Limits overtime and holiday pay expenses.
  • Safeguards company confidentiality and intellectual property.

For employees, a contract clarifies job expectations, compensation, benefits, and other crucial aspects of employment. 

On the employer's side, it's an opportunity to establish terms and conditions that align with the company's goals and standards.
