A contract of employment adheres to the Contract Law Principles. It is a legally enforceable agreement between the employer and the employee or traditionally the two parties referred to as master and servant.
The contract creates rights, immunities and obligations on both parties.
The fundamental obligation of the employer is to pay wages; conversely, the employee is to provide services fulfilling expectations. It is so fundamental that the failure of both parties to these fundamental obligations will be deemed as having legally breach the contact.
So, the Contractual Terms in relation to the Benefits and Conditions of Service must be correctly drawn in the Contract of Employment. Any anomalies in the Contract Terms can create disharmony in the contractual relationship that can be detrimental to morale and productivity that are so pertinent for any company’s sustainability.
