Employers often want their employees to sign a contract. But before doing so, employees might be wise to read everything contained in the contract, including the fine print. No employees in Ontario should ever feel pressured into signing any documents presented to them by employers and in fact, they have every right to get a lawyer to look over any employment contracts if they so choose.
Contracts are becoming more mainstream in the working world. Employment contracts in Ontario define exactly what an employee's position entails and stipulate for how long. Contract work can be highly lucrative, yet many people still seek out permanent positions rather than work on a contractual basis.
