What are employment contracts?

In essence, they are formal documents by which the employee and the employer agree on the way they will work together. This is the basis for employment. Yet, when you draw an employment contract, you must consider the Employment Relations Act (ZDR-1). In brief, it is a collective agreement that binds the employer and the company’s internal acts.

  • Date when work starts,
  • Title of the type of work with a brief description (education level, conditions),
  • The place of work (if you don’t include anything, then it is at the office’s address),
  • The duration of the employment contract; the reason for a fixed-term contract and a provision on yearly leave (how can you take it if you have fixed-term contract),
  • Provision for daily or weekly working time and distribution of working time,
  • The amount of the basic salary in euros to which he or she is entitled for the performance of his or her work under the contract of employment, and any other payments,
