The Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) applies the National Employment Standards (NES), which are a set of minimum employment standards in Australia.In addition, each state and territory has legislation that deals with various employment matters such as occupational health and safety or discrimination. This Employment Agreement does not take into account the requirements of modern awards or enterprise agreements. If you run a business, and have an existing employment agreement with an employee, and need to alter it, you can use an Employee Agreement Amendment. Sometimes changes are necessary if the work responsibilities have shifted, or if you'd like to reward an employee with more vacation days. An Employment Agreement Amendment is useful when you want to change only one or two terms in an existing contract. We’ve crafted this template to be used across all engineering fields. Whether you’re in academia, consulting, software, or something else, your pitches will be smoother and better targeted. If the spy subsequently sues the government on the contract over issues like salary or benefits, then the spy has breached the contract by revealing its existence.

Putting in a timeline or job duration (e.g. we will employ you for at least one year) can minimize the protection you get from at will employment.
