There are times that you question yourself if you really need to have a written contract. After a successful job interview and a firm handshake with employer who promised you a good salary package, you think it is a seal deal, do you need more than that? The answer is “YES”. You need a written contract is like having the confirmation between employer and you which is legally binding. If the hiring employer fails to act according to your contract, then they have broken their promise and are liable for the damages. However, if the agreement was oral promise that you will receive 20 percent of the profit sharing of the company but later figure changed to 2 percent, surely you will be shocked to learn that. Is the promise worth anything? Unfortunately, the answer is probably NO, because oral contracts are not enforceable and it is so difficult to establish the terms of an oral contract in a dispute, the legal system tries to discourage them. Regrettably, there are unethical businesses around and you can save yourself a lot of headaches by discovering this information in advance by asking employer for a written contract once you are hired. If the prospect employer starts bringing excuses and delaying your contract, it may be a sign they are unable to meet their promises. Possibly that can give you pause before you pledge your time and energy with an unethical company.
