Learning More About the Types of Work Contracts and Their Utility

Canadian businesses can legally use many types of work contracts to retain the best talent. Our workshop examines the components each contract must include to be a viable legal resource and the utility of each contract type, including agreements that are:

  • Indefinite or permanent
  • Fixed term
  • Causal or on-call
  • Part-time
  • Temporary
  • Probationary
  • Freelance
  • Internship or co-op agreements
  • Apprenticeships
  • Remote

An ill-suited contract leaves much room for interpretation and makes it harder to gain a favourable outcome when disputes are brought to court. Choosing the proper framework when creating a legally binding agreement is essential to ensure the document retains its weight in a court of law. Learn how to discern the best contract type for a particular position during our training.

Breaking Down Terms of Employment

A solid contract helps reduce your risks as an employer. However, understanding the different terms of employment and how they should be applied to each contract type can be a challenge. Let our program facilitators help you access the information you will need to help make the best decisions about the employment contracts offered by your business.

Our team breaks down terms of employment that must be included in an employment contract. Some of these include:

  • Wage
  • Work hours
  • Overtime
  • Vacations
  • Statutory holidays
  • Leaves of absence
  • Termination and severance
  • Layoff procedures
  • Wage deductions
  • …and much more!

Examining How to Use Restrictive Covenant Agreements

When drafting restrictive covenant agreements, proper phrasing is crucial. We offer hands-on exercises and best practice guidelines to prepare clear, unambiguous, and enforceable covenants.

Some of the most common restrictive covenant types include:

  • Non-compete clauses
  • Non-solicitation clauses
  • Confidentiality clauses
  • Non-dealing clauses
  • Intellectual property clauses

By the end of our training, participants should understand restrictive covenants from a theoretical perspective and be equipped with the practical skills and knowledge to draft, implement, and enforce them effectively in their respective businesses or practices.

Enforceability of Restrictive Covenants

Not all restrictive covenants are enforceable, and Canada’s provinces and territories might interpret restrictive covenants slightly differently. Our training provides insights into these nuances, ensuring you have a nationwide perspective. We cover the legal factors influencing enforceability, including the principle of reasonableness and the necessity to protect legitimate business interests.
