The employment contract summarizes the rights and obligations of both employer and employee. The effects of a poorly drafted employment contract can be disproportionate for the company. It’s best to have a lawyer draw up an employment contract, as the consequences can be far-reaching in the event of a dispute.

So it’s important to check everything before signing a contract, as it will serve as proof of your rights and good faith in the event of a dispute.

The need for knowledge of employment contract law

Whatever the type of employment contract, it’s vital to have a good grasp of the laws governing the recruitment of an employee by an employer. In fact, there are many laws in force concerning employment law. A lawyer’s meticulous analysis of the various provisions of the Labor Code and applicable case law is essential. The involvement of a lawyer gives legal force to the employment contract. It’s also a way of protecting both parties in the event of a dispute.

In addition, employee benefits such as social protection, vacations and protection against dismissal are all covered by the employment contract. It is therefore an essential document for employees. A lawyer is therefore the best person to integrate these factors into the contract.

The presence of the employer in the insertion of several clauses in the contract

The employment contract must therefore include several elements. These include the various working conditions and the rights and obligations towards the employee. Consequently, when it comes to setting up specific clauses, the advice of a lawyer is strictly unavoidable. These include :

  • The length of the trial period, which must be specified in the employment contract. These are the trial period clause. This period may be modified, depending on collective agreements.
  • The
    training waiver clause
    This clause obliges an employee who has benefited from costly training to remain with the employer who financed it for a given period of time.
  • The
    mobility clause
    The mobility clause gives the employer the power to change the employee’s place of work.
  • The
    exclusivity clause
    which allows the employer to ask his employee to grant him most or all of his professional time.
  • The
    confidentiality clause
    which constitutes an obligation for the employee to respect and maintain professional secrecy. He may not disseminate ideas relating to the company’s operations.
  • The
    clause forfait heure
    which stipulates the annual fixed amount of an employee’s working time.

In any case, it’s best to leave the drafting of your employment contract to a competent professional, a lawyer.
