Employment agreement

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?

I'm the sole proprietor of a company and I entered into a vendor agreement with another company. The other company put forth a clause that in case of dispute, mediation would be used to settle the dispute. Now, a dispute regarding payment has arisen but I want to keep things confidential. If the matter goes for mediation, will confidentiality be lost and will the dispute be out to the public? Is there a possibility of private mediation sessions that are confidential?

Legal notice from employer-is the employment contract valid and enforceable?

My wife has been served legal notice by her employer as she has left her job without serving notice period. The notice period was 2 months if probation passed and 1 month if on probation. He(CEO of company) is demanding 1.5 lakh plus 2 months salary and 24% interest. He has also verbally abused and threatened and mentally harassed I need help in - 1- Understanding if the clauses added in the employment contract are even valid as per labor law/contract law. In my understanding they might be arbitrary but need expert opinion as the employment contract is signed. (Clauses 7a,7b and 7c in the employment offer) 2 - Replying to the legal notice 3 - Drafting terms of settlement - even if in the worst case 1 months notice is served; it will be 9 hours a day and the salary will be paid in full after serving notice period else we will take legal measures.
