Contracts of Employment Explained

In many respects the contract of employment is very similar to any other contract. Usually, a contract of employment will be expressed in writing, but as with many other contracts this need not always be the case. The contract of employment will consist of a number of terms and conditions. These may be express or implied. Express terms are those which have been agreed between the parties, either orally or in writing. Implied terms are those which are so obvious to an onlooker that they are held to be part of the contract, and therefore do not need to be expressed by the parties. Breach by either party of any of the terms will, of course, amount to breach of contract.
