Employers and Employees

  • Francis P. McHugh
Part of the In Business Now Series book series


A simple picture is sometimes presented of the relationship of employer and employee. When an employee joins a company, he or she agrees wages and terms and conditions of employment, which must be set down in a written contract of employment not later than thirteen weeks after the verbal agreement. (The contract does not apply, of course, in the case of part-time workers, as we have seen in Unit 1). The employee is seen as having a duty to serve the company to the best of his or her ability, in return for which he or she receives a weekly wage packet or monthly salary.
