1. Under the laws of the United States, there are no minimum requirements for an employment contract. Also, in most states, no written memorialisation of any terms is required. An employment relationship in the United States is presumed to be “at-will,” i.e., terminable by either party, with or without cause or notice. Indeed, a majority of employees in the United State are employed on an “at-will” basis, without a written employment contract, and only with a written offer of employment that outlines the basic terms and conditions of their employment. Whether the employment relationship is “at-will” or pursuant to a written employment contract, parties are free to negotiate and set the terms and conditions of their relationship, so long as none of the provisions violate any federal, state or local law, rules or regulations governing the employment relationship.

2. Employee Representation and Industrial Relations. 2.1 What are the rules relating to trade union recognition?

5. Business Sales. 5.1 On a business sale (either a share sale or asset transfer) do employees automatically transfer to the buyer? Employees do not automatically transfer to a buyer, but this is the case in a share sale because the employing entity remains the same.

9. Court Practice and Procedure. 9.1 Which courts or tribunals have jurisdiction to hear employment-related complaints and what is their composition?

1. The primary difference between employment law and labor law is the relationship between the employer and the employee. If the law concerns the relationship between an employer and an individual, this typically falls under employment law. If the law concerns the relationship between an employer and a group of people (such as a union), then that falls under the domain of labor law. The two terms are often used interchangeably and do share some commonalities; however, they are two separate forms of practice. Attorneys may specialize in one practice or another; therefore, it is important to discern if representation should be from an employment law attorney or a labor law attorney.

There may be emails or faxes confirming job duties and benefits. These all combine to supply content to the employment contract.
