Knowing whether you have an employment agreement, and what type of employment agreement it is, may determine your workplace rights, especially when considering what qualifies as wrongful termination. While written employment agreements are the most straightforward and easiest to use in court, it is not safe to assume that an employment agreement has not been created just because it isn’t written down. Even where no written agreement exists, a court may find that a worker has enforceable rights against their employer under other legal principles that make an agreed promise enforceable, even when it isn’t written down, by assuming that an agreement was implied. This page provides more information about employment agreements and your rights under them.
