Benefits of Employment Contracts
The relationship that exists between an employer and an employee is based on a law of contract, but unlike other types of agreement only some certain aspects of the contract of the employees are required to be in writing by the law. If the terms and the conditions of a contract of the contract are not followed the person who has breached the agreement is taken to a tribunal court to answer to some charges. It is a common practice for the employers to enter into agreements with the employees so that they can start an employer and employee relationship. These agreements are usually put in writing by the employer incorporating the terms and both the employer and employee have to mutually agree with the standard form, or with the negotiated terms that exist between both parties. The employers and the employees should enter into a written contract so that in a case of any changes in the working conditions, the contract can be amended and incorporated into the contract.
When the changes occur in business places the information has to be captured in the agreement contract to protect both the employee and the employer. When changes occur in a business place, the employer and the employee has to ensure that the changes are captured in the written contract and then both parties to sign.

This contract is in operation from the time is signed, or the employment commences, until there are some amendments, or the contract is terminated. The contracts are called a common law employment contracts.
