Employment Agreement Template

Employment Agreement Template


Hey, biz boss! You’re ready to scale your empire  how exciting! But you’re busy keeping things running smoothly – you don’t have the time to stress about trying to put together an airtight Employment Agreement for your new hire. Lucky for you, we’re here to help with our Employment Agreement template. Ensure that expectations are clear on both sides, while setting out your employee’s rights and responsibilities and protecting your biz (both during and after their period of employment). Simply add in some specifics surrounding the arrangement and you’re ready for your new employee to sign on the dotted line.

    Who’s it for? 

    Our Employment Agreement template is for businesses that are ready to hire a new addition to their team in the form of an employee. If your circumstances are better suited to hiring an independent contractor, you’ll need our Independent Contractor Agreement template instead. And if you’re thinking “hold up a sec – what’s the difference?!, get in touch with us for a free 15-minute consult and one of our friendly lawyers will point you in the right direction! Pssst  you might also want to pair this template with our Employee Handbook template, which includes a series of policies and procedures for your new hire to follow.  


    What’s included? 

    • Your employee’s obligations, both during and after their employment 
    • Probationary period terms 
    • Remuneration provisions 
    • Leave entitlement explanations for full time and part time employees, as well as casual employees 
    • What happens on termination 
    • Confidentiality and intellectual property protection 
    • Non-compete and non-solicit restraints 


    A couple of quick things to make sure we’re on the same page:

    First, purchasing our templates, utilising our free resources or having a chat with us as part of a consultation doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Foundd Legal (sorry!). It also doesn’t constitute legal advice.

    All templates adhere to Australian principles of contract law and are designed for those doing business in Australia (unless they specifically state that they are in accordance with New Zealand law, for businesses in New Zealand). Similar principles may apply in your jurisdiction, but we recommend that you consult with a qualified lawyer in your area prior to purchasing our templates.

    While we do our best to minimise legalese (that’s complex lawyer-speak) within our contracts, there are certain things that require particular wording in order to best protect you and your business. Please don’t expect our contracts to be super simple - they’re as simple as they possibly can be, while still being comprehensive and putting your needs first (even the ones you didn’t know you had!). Of course, if you’re having trouble understanding something specific, you’re welcome to get in touch with any questions!
