We spend a large part of our lives at work - many of us as employees in a company. As a result it is important that clear rules govern the relationship between employers and employees. Both sides have rights and obligations. Laws set out basic provisions. In addition, individual employment contracts and collective bargaining agreements govern labour relations.
Individual Contract of Employment
The individual contract of employment normally covers the following points:
- Contracting parties (Company, Employee)
- Date of commencement of work
- Function / Job description
- Trial period and period of notice
Which specifics should be covered in addition?
- Participation in the Company
- Vocational training opportunities
Much that is not specified in the individual employment contract is governed by the principles of the Collective Employment Agreement and the law. Therefore the employment contract refers to provisions, which apply equally to all employees. These include:
- Company Rules
- the Collective Employment Agreement
- Labour Law
- Obligations Law
- Law on Co-operation
