The length of the fixed term employment agreement cannot be ambiguous. It must state when the term begins and ends. When the agreed end date is reached, it will automatically expire, without either party needing to terminate it.
Having these terms and conditions set out in a clearly drafted agreement, helps ensure that both parties know what is expected of them and thus reduces any misunderstandings or conflict. It is a handy reference for both to refer to and clarify issues. They also offer greater protection for employers, for example, by including clauses to protect confidential information such as client data bases and work created in the course of employment.
Make sure your agreements comply with the National Employment Standards and Fair Work Act. These are part of the national framework that governs employment in Australia. They work in conjunction with employment awards, by setting out employment standards and issues such as minimum rights, responsibilities and employer obligations.Fixed Term Employment Agreement Available for Immediate Download
