Clauses in the Employment Contract

Home | Blog | Clauses in the Employment Contract

Employment contracts come in all shapes and forms. In recent years, the temporary contract in particular has become popular. New employees hardly ever get a permanent contract. Specially as a small employer you'll first have to look the cat out of the tree and start with one or more contracts.

Clauses in the contract

You can include special agreements (or clauses) in the employment contract on, among other things, the following subjects:

- Trial period: This is common with new employees. Pay attention to the legal rules for a valid probationary period . For example, you must always agree on the probationary period in writing and this is only permitted with a temporary contract for more than 6 months or a permanent contract.

- Competition clause or relationship clause: With a competition clause or relationship clause you can prevent employees from working at the competitor or 'taking customers' with them. Keep in mind the legal rules, such as the rule that a non-competition clause is in principle only possible with a permanent contract.

- Confidentiality clause: A confidentiality clause is intended to keep valuable, confidential and competition-sensitive information within the company walls.

- Study cost clause : A study cost clause contains agreements about the reimbursement of training costs. This clause must meet several conditions.

- Ban on ancillary activities: In principle, an employee can perform other work in addition to his regular job. In the employment contract you can specify that ancillary activities require permission from the employer. pay attention

If your company is covered by a collective agreement, you must take into account the provisions contained therein. Sometimes it contains rules about the form and content of the employment contract. There may also be a (mandatory) model agreement.
