This Employment Agreement i.e. terms and conditions of employment is a contract for use when an Indian business hires a new employee. It can be used for a range of different employment types, including full time, part-time and fixed term.
This Agreement sets out all the terms of employment, including job duties, salary and benefits, work hours, confidentiality, annual leave and various other key terms.
In many cases, once an employer chooses to take on a new employee, the parties want to get started without delay. Therefore, the employer may wish to provide the employee with a letter that spells out some key terms more briefly. Employers may wish to use an Offer Letter for Employment in these situations and then follow it up with this Employment Agreement.
However, this Employment Agreement goes into more detail about the various terms of employment and provides a more robust document so that both the employer and the employee fully understand what is expected of one another, and how the employment arrangement may develop over time (for example, by providing details of bonuses and pay increases).
This Employment Agreement is not suitable for use by contractors. Instead, contractors should use the Service Agreement.
The Consultancy Agreement can be used when availing the services of the Consultant or independent contractor by an individual or a business entity. For more information on the difference between these two agreements, please check our guide: What is the difference between an Employee and an Independent Contractor?
