Employment Agreement FAQ
What's the difference between a Basic and Complex Agreement?
Basic Agreements are suitable for standard employees and follow the minimum basic employment standards and include:
- Description of the role and schedule
- Simple compensation (salary or wage)
- Standard termination, resignation, and probation procedures
- Simple confidentiality provisions
- IP assignment to the employer
Complex Employment Agreements are suitable for high-level employees and exceed the minimum basic employment standards. They include (but are not limited to):
- Custom termination procedures, layoff provisions, or entitlements
- Non-compete or non-solicit provisions
- Complex compensation structures
- Expense or fee reimbursements
- Layoff provisions
Why not use a free template found on the internet?
Employment law is complex, with slightly different laws in each province and industry. Some laws are very old, others obscure, and some extremely situational, which makes Employment Agreements difficult to copy and paste. Using an Employment Agreement that you found online might leave you with an invalid Agreement in the eyes of the Courts if certain aspects of the employment are not adequately documented. Illegal terminations can result in messy disputes and expensive settlements, so we always recommend getting your Employment Agreements drafted by a professional.
