I've just joined work at a new company. However, they haven't provided me with an employment agreement. They've told me they'll give it soon but they don't seem to be doing so. Should I pursue the matter further and get it at any cost? Is it compulsory to sign an employment agreement?
It is not compulsory to sign an employment agreement but it is advisable to do so and hence, you must pursue the matter and try to get it. The agreement is the one which clearly gives details on your employment and ensures that there is indeed a relationship between the employer and yourself. It will also serve as a crucial piece of evidence if misunderstandings or conflicts arise. Further, the agreement helps in clarifying roles and prevents any discrepancy that could arise out of a lack of clarity.
