Employment Contract or Agreement


Privacy Policy

employment contract This sample employment contract or agreement will save you money in legal fees.

Increasingly, today's employers are choosing contractual employment rather than traditional hiring, especially when recruiting professional or managerial staff.

First, just to be sure we are talking the same language, an Employment Agreement is an arrangement in which an employer hires a staff member using a legal contract to stipulate the terms. The individual is your employee and receives wages and benefits. This is not to be confused with outsourcing, or contracting with an independent contractor to perform a task or service.

The benefits are obvious. All employment terms are laid out in the agreement. Both parties agree and sign. The contract stipulates a set term of employment, with or without the option of renewal at the contract's end.

But as you know, contract language is confusing and lawyers bill by the hour. That's where this sample contract comes in. You edit the document to your liking, then take it to your attorney for review. There is no substitute for a good lawyer,and these sample contracts are not meant to be used without guidance from your legal professional.

However, you can save money by minimizing the billable hours that your lawyer will spend on your agreement if you do the preliminary work yourself. It's not as difficult as you think, especially if you use this sample Employment Contract as your guide.

This package contains TWO sample contracts. All have been approved by a contract lawyer, so you can be assured that they are based on solid principles of contract law.

When you download these documents, you will receive:

Sample Employment Agreement #1: This is a brief, "no-frills" employment contract suitable for hiring professional or managerial staff for a small non-profit organization or small workplace.

Sample Employment Agreement #2: This is a larger, more detailed agreement with many more items. It could be modified for almost any employment situation, but is perhaps more suitable for professional or managerial employees.

Or, perhaps you want a combination of the two. In that case, mix and match items from both as needed.

Please note: These documents are not job descriptions. Job descriptions must be developed separately and referenced by the document, if desired.

How to Use These Sample Employment Contracts

  • Using the sample contracts as a guide, you add your own information, being sure to customize it by editing, deleting or adding terms to suit your unique requirements. There is no possible way that any "off the shelf" contract could fit every need, after all!
  • There is a good chance that you will find items in the contracts that you hadn't thought about yourself. Perhaps some of the items will spark your imagination and cause you to think of new aspects that you want to add.
  • Then, when it is completed, decide for yourself which of the terms you have included are negotiable and which are non-negotiable. Jot this down on a separate paper and take it along when you visit your lawyer. You will be prepared to discuss the Employment Agreement from start to finish and you will be prepared to discuss negotiation strategies.

The files in the Employment Contractor package are available in MS Word which are contained in a zip file. Other file formats can be discussed if you don't have software that can open MS Word.
