Employment Contracts

You think a verbal agreement is good until it’s not

You thought a verbal agreement was as good as a written contract only to find that when it comes time to change the terms of your staff’s employment due to business demands, it’s a difficult process as nothing is in writing.   You find your business getting audited and they ask to see your staffs’ employment agreements but you don’t have one for each person so you get slapped with a hefty fine that could have been easily avoidable.

A situation develops where you need to let an employee go however without a written contract your legal rights as an employee are exposed.
