Individual Employment Agreements

Labour laws can be tricky to navigate without the proper experience. At Watermark our team of lawyers can draft individual employment agreements for all types of positions and businesses. Contracts can be drafted for part time, volunteer, casual, contractor, and full time positions.

The government’s employment website sets out a comprehensive list of items an employment agreement should contain:

  • the names of the employer and the employee (to make clear who are the parties to the agreement)
  • a description of the work to be performed (to make clear what the employee is expected to do)
  • an indication of the place of work
  • the agreed hours or an indication of the hours that the employee will work, this includes agreement on any or all of the following:
    • the number of hours
    • the start and finish times
    • or the days of the week the employee will work.
  • the wage rate or salary payable (must be equal or greater than the relevant minimum wage) and how it will be paid (if the employee won’t be paid in cash, this should be in the employment agreement or must be agreed in writing somewhere else)
  • a plain explanation of how to help resolve employment relationship problems including advice that personal grievances must be raised within 90 days
  • a statement that the employee will get (at least) time-and-a-half payment for working on a public holiday
  • for relevant employees, an employment protection provision to apply if the employer’s business is sold or transferred, or if the employee’s work is contracted out
  • any other matters agreed on, such as trial periods, probationary arrangements, or availability provisions
  • the nature of the employment if the employment is fixed-term.

We ensure that our finished product checks all these boxes as well as prudently covering other areas – like rest and meal breaks.

Let us take care of all employment agreement drafting.

I had the pleasure of engaging Watermark Employment Law for what would otherwise be an overwhelmingly stressful redundancy. From the get go, Jonathan was empathetic, professional and made me feel comfortable. His advice on the process and the options available to me were invaluable, and on top of this, he listened to what I had to say and carefully considered my input ever step along the way. Without a doubt, Jonathan's experience and integrity landed me with a fantastic exit. Thank you very much Jonathan and team!

Simon was absolute god send! I would have been lost (and a lot worse off !) with out him. What I particularly liked was he worked with both parties to find a mutually agreeable outcome. The fixed rates were also a bonus so you knew where you were at. For Employment issues definitely recommend Simon and team.

On behalf of a family member, I required expert advice and assistance on a matter of employment law. The first law firm I tried did not seem to have my interests at heart, so I phoned around and Simon Greening at Watermark Employment Law came back as a strong recommendation. From the initial engagement to the conclusion of the matter, we were provided excellent advice and managed the entire process in a way that took all the stress away. Communication was great, ensuring I knew what was happening and what was needed next, and they conducted themselves with professionalism. Not only that, they achieved a result for us that was outstanding. A special thank you to Kylie Hudson who put together our case and represented us. Business or individual, I recommend Watermark for any matter on Employment Law.
