Introduction to Contracts Of Employment Certification
A contract of employment represents a fundamental agreement between an employer and worker. Therefore, it needs to be clear, fair and comprehensive. To avoid misunderstandings, you also need to know how to propose and implement changes.
Although contracts do not always have to be written down, it is best practice to clarify the terms and conditions on paper. This course focuses on what should be included in a written contract, when it should be drawn up and what happens if one or both parties break its terms.
