Why do I need written employment contracts for my staff?

It is necessary for all employees to have a written contract of employment which at a minimum includes an agreed period of notice to terminate the employment. View all documents and policies.

Generally, the best time to create a contract of employment is when a new employee joins your business or if there is any noteworthy change in the arrangements between yourself and an employee. For example: 

•  A promotion
•  Update to job title or line manager
•  Change of location
•  Employment status changes from full-time to part-time
•  Change of casual/contract work to permanent employee, and more


Written employment contracts are relevant for all employees, even employees who are covered by awards and enterprise agreements.
