Is a contract of employment enforceable if it is not signed?

By August 26, 2016Uncategorized

This will depend on the circumstances of the case. A contract of employment is an agreement made between an employer and an employee, rather than a piece of paper. Where there is written confirmation of this agreement, the terms within it may still be enforceable even if it is unsigned, if in practice the employer and employee have both been working to it.

It is important therefore that employees do not assume that not signing a written confirmation of the contract means that they have not agreed to it or that it is not enforceable.
