This employment contract is a legally sound and flexible solution for businesses that hire their employees in a remote environment.
An employment agreement allows an employer to hire an employee. An employment contract specifies the rights and obligations of the employer and the employee. An employment contract will specify key information such as the employee's role, salary, work location, hours and holidays.
A fixed-term employee is entitled to most of the same employment rights as a full-time employee such as pension but will have a fixed term contract. A fixed-term employee can be full-time or part-time.
When a worker does not work in the employer's office and is not intended to, they will work remotely from home or another designated location.
Employment contracts for remote workers should include additional provisions on the protection of confidential information, intellectual property and other sensitive information when working at home. Employment contracts should also specify if equipment will be provided to the remote worker or not.
Legislate's employment contract is suitable for remote workers and can be tailored to different types of roles, including software development related positions. This ensures that the employment contract protects both the employer and the employee's rights and obligations when the employee is classed as a remote worker
