Contracts rarely, if ever, fit into a single box. All agreements, to some extent, must be customized to the situation, individuals and/or businesses. An employment contract is not only a legal obligation, but also a document that describes the relationship between employer and worker and which, in fact, must help prevent conflict. However, if the worst happens, the rights and obligations of both parties, as well as the way forward to solve the problems, become clear.

If a collective agreement covers your employment, your new worker must have the same conditions as the collective agreement for the first 30 days of work. After 30 days, if the worker has not joined the union, the employer and the employee can sign changes or a new individual contract. Every worker must have a written employment contract. It can be either an individual agreement or a collective agreement.
