Employment contract

An employment contract is a legally binding agreement between an employer and employee, in which the employee agrees to work for the employer. Such an agreement records the agreements made between the parties. Often, employment contracts are important only when a contract is terminated or a conflict exists. Therefore, before entering into a contract, have the terms thoroughly checked. Would you rather have an employment contract drawn up by a specialist? We can help you with that too!

Types of employment contracts


When hiring staff, there are different employment contracts you can offer a new employee. For a start, you can choose between permanent contracts and flexible contracts. 

As an employer, it is advisable to be aware of all conditions and options. This will help you decide which type of employment contract is best suited to your company's situation and the position in question. For example, you can choose between only permanent or flexible staff, or a combination of these. 

You can choose from the following employment contracts:

  • Permanent employment contract
  • Fixed-term employment contract
  • On-call employment contract
  • Agency work employment contract
  • Agency contract
  • Model agreement (freelance)

An employment contract contains important details, such as position, duties, scope of work and salary. It is also advisable to pay attention to other terms and conditions of employment, also known as clauses. This can help tackle undesirable behaviour or potentially conflicting situations in advance, both during and after the employment contract. Agreements that have an after-effect are also called "post-contractual clauses". Below, we have listed the most common clauses.

Reached out to this agency by phone and was immediately helped by Roy. He looked at my case the same day and provided advice a few hours later which was well explained and in detail. He took the time to listen and share his expertise.

I had an excellent experience at Adviesgroep Eindhoven with mr. Roy van der Wiel. Roy was very quick to respond to my requested legal assignment, stayed in constant contact, and within a few days provided me with a comprehensive memo regarding the assignment. Thank you Roy for the quality service!

Super happy with the support on each step of the process. Being redundant after many years of service was surely a difficult process, but with professional and carrying guidance of Roy, seemed a lot much easier. Strongly recommend!
