Program Overview

An employment contract is an agreement between the employee and employer that governs the terms and conditions of the employment arrangement. The employment contract is the best evidence of the management as to the type of arrangement agreed with the employee.

What stipulations should an employment contract contain?

There are a lot of factors that we need to understand in developing a contract – types of employment, wages and benefits, working schedules, general duties and responsibilities. Developing a contract should also consider the nature of business of the company and important labor laws that apply.

The Employers Confederation of the Philippines (ECOP) will conduct a 2-session training program that will help participants determine the appropriate stipulations in an employment contract. The first part of the training program aims to discuss the basic elements of an employment contract, and the second part of the program will be a consultation on application of learning during the first session.

Program Objectives

At the end of the 2-session program, participants will be able to:

  • Learn the concept or basic elements of a contract;
  • Know the nature and characteristics of an employment contract in relation to protection of workers;
