Drafting Employment Contract

Every business owner will have to work on their Employment Contract, which is sometimes known as a Contract of Service. The Employment Contract or Contract of Service is an agreement between the employer and the employee, with a set of terms and conditions that is stated clearly in the contract.

All Employment Contracts or Contract of Service can be negotiated between the employer and the employee, granted that both employer and employee understand the labour laws in Malaysia which governs the statutory terms of employment. Do note that all employment contracts must contain the essential terms and conditions.

These terms and conditions are:
– The commencement date of the employment.
– The title of the job with the scope of work required of the employee.
– The number of working hours to fulfill within a week.
– The duration of the probation period.
– The details of the remuneration package.
– The benefits that the employee would receive.
– The period of notice required for work termination.
– The code of conduct of the employee.
– The percentage of EPF contribution.

For most business owners, drafting the Employment Contract may be deemed as an easy task. However, the details in the contract must not be overlooked or misstated as to safeguard the rights of both the employer and the employee. An employment contract must ensure that both parties receive fair treatment based on labour laws.
