Employment Contracts

Employment Contracts are essential legal documents that govern the employment relationship.

A well-drafted and considered contract or agreement provides clarity from the beginning of the employment relationship (or a service relationship for independent contractors). It provides the needed transparency on the rights and obligations of each party.

Independent Contractors

We can advise on whether certain work arrangements constitute an independent contractual relationship or an employer/employee relationship. This is an important consideration for employers who must be careful to avoid breaching ‘sham provisions’ by misrepresenting an employment relationship as one of contracting via an independent contractor agreement.

Various factors must be considered when determining the difference between an employee and an independent contractor, and each case must be assessed in light of the relevant circumstances.

If you have an independent working arrangement with an organisation, or have been asked to work as a contractor, we can provide advice to ensure compliance and avoid the risks associated with breaches.
