Employee Promotion Agreement

You`ll find other useful business downloads in our working time model, job description model and staff manual. In an Ontario Court of Appeal decision entitled Irrcher/MI Developments, it was explained how the “modified substrate” occurs when an initial employment contract is no longer applicable in the event of termination. This can happen because the job you originally signed up for, as in this case, is “just not the same job.” If you no longer do basically the same or similar work and have actually taken on a lot more responsibility, you would (rightly) expect an increase in attention. It is assumed that a worker intends to terminate the original contract only on the basis of the circumstances at stake. It would be unfair to expect that person to be tied to his or her original contract if his or her employment position has changed significantly. Employers should keep in mind that it is not a question of whether the worker signs, but whether the contract would be legally enforceable. As a general rule, this becomes a problem at the time of termination, when the employer claims, on the one hand, to defer to the termination clause or severance pay and, on the other hand, that the employee or his lawyer will take the position that the contract is unenforceable because of the lack of sufficient consideration at the time of signing. A new employee-wage contract model, used as a result of the employee`s promotion, should continue to have all the information contained in an employer-employee contract model (salary details, legal competence, signatures, etc.). Employers sometimes use a promotion or salary increase to introduce new, more restrictive employment contracts.

This is one more reason to ensure that you seek advice before signing, so that you understand the broader legal context of what you need to sign. A promotion letter to the employee is a formal document indicating that the employee has been promoted to a senior position. This letter is prepared by the employer and signed by the authorized person.
