Sample Employment Contract

A written employment contract reminds both employers and employees of their obligations, helps avoid possible disputes and sets out clearly the rights and benefits of both parties. To assist employers and employees to draw up written employment contracts, the Labour Department has prepared a sample employment contract for their reference.

The sample covers the major entitlements and protection enjoyed by employees under the EO. To know more about these entitlements (such as their eligibility criteria), please refer to the EO or the booklet "A Concise Guide to the Employment Ordinance" issued by the Labour Department, or visit the webpages below:
