Why You Need An Employment Agreement

If you are hiring an employee, you should put an Employment Agreement in black & white. It will help you protect your rights, ensure your employee's entitlements are clearly stated, and minimise the risk of costly disputes.

Likewise, if you’re working as an employee, make sure you get the contract in writing so it's clear what you will get paid.


When To Use Our
Online Employment Contracts

This suite of Employment Contract Templates can be used for all your employees--whether they are full time, part time or casual.

Once you purchase this suite of Employment Contract Templates, you can use (and re-use) them for all your employees, whether you hire them as full timers, part timers or casuals.

The Legal Zebra Templates are up to date and suitable for use in all States and Territories of Australia including NSW, Victoria, ACT, WA, SA, NT, Tasmania and Queensland. 

If your employment arrangements are complicated, for example involving special workplace agreements, you should seek personalised advice from a lawyer.

Here are some examples of when to use our Employment Contract Templates...

Example: Contract to hire an office manager

We have agreed to take on a new office manager. We want to make it clear how the deal will work and when she gets paid. Plus, we want to make sure we are not caught with any unexpected liabilities. 

Example: Agreement for fixed term employee to cover maternity leave

As one of our employees is going on maternity leave for 12 months, we want to offer a fixed term contract to a part time employee during that period. We want a simple agreement to cover this so we don't have to keep the temp employee on indefinitely. 

Example: CEO's Employment Agreement with bonuses

Our company is taking on a CEO. We need an agreement to cover the important points like his bonuses and commissions on sales.
