Ensure that your application contains an employment agreement that clearly states:
the employee’s job description
the legal entity
the contact details of the supporting employer
expected minimum hours of work
the base salary
whether the employment is fixed term (of at least 24 months), or permanent
what agreement is in place if the employee works over 40 hours per week (for salaried employment)
all mandatory clauses.
Employment Agreement Builder
This tool helps you create tailored employment agreements. Employment agreements are a legal requirement – and a great foundation for an employment relationship.
It covers what you must do by law, and also sets out common mistakes made by employers and how to avoid them. It takes about 30 minutes to complete. You can save it part way through.
Once you finish we'll send you the completed agreement, a sample offer letter, a summary of tips and common mistakes tailored to your business, and a to-do list of suggestions for your next steps.
If you and your employee agree to a change to the employment agreement, instead of creating a whole new agreement, a letter of variation might be an option. Especially if you’ve agreed to a temporary change or only one or two aspects of the employment agreement are changing.
