Every employee must have a written employment agreement. It can be either an individual agreement or a collective agreement. All employers must keep a copy of each employee’s employment agreement.
Visit our employment agreement builder (external link) for sample clauses of things you must include in employment agreements and sample clauses of things you should or could include in an employment agreement.
It might take you as little as 20 minutes to build an agreement, depending on how many clauses you choose to use. Once you’ve completed all of the steps, you’ll be able to print out or save the agreement to your computer.
