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 of 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. The employer may therefore wish to first provide the employee with a letter which spells out some of the key terms more briefly. In these situations, employers may wish to use a Letter of Offer for Employment, and then to 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.
