Do you want to know the key terms of a full-time employment contract with a restriction period? Then you've landed on the right page.
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 full-time employee will work between 35 and 40 hours a week usually spread over 5 days.
Employees sometimes have post-employment restrictions which will prevent them from working for a competitor or soliciting clients or employees during a fixed period of time. The nature and length of the restrictions will depend on the employee's role and the nature of the company.
An employer can impose a post-employment restriction period to protect their own business. A restriction period needs to be reasonable and can be negotiated before or after the termination of employment if they are too stringent.
Legislate's employment contract allows an employer to set restrictions and their associated restriction period.
