Employment Agreement

An employment agreement lays down the mutual rights and obligations between employee and employer and it constitutes, in addition to the statutory provisions of labour law and the applicable collective bargaining agreement, the basic structure for the configuration of employment relationship.

Depending on the group of professions and the field of occupation there are different requirements posed vis-à-vis an employment agreement, where the parties’ freedom of disposition is very strongly restricted in lots of fields by statutory provisions or the prescriptions of a collective bargaining agreement. An employment agreement having been ill-conceived may cause anyhow more damage than benefit. Therefore, the careful drafting and/or audit of an employment agreement is always in the interest of the employers.

The Esztegar Law Office examines and drafts employment agreements and other labour law understandings (agreement on dissolution, termination by notice etc.) for undertakings and advises you in labour law issues.
