It is only mandatory to sign an employment contract with an employee in the case of a fixed-term contract or a part-time contract. The signature of a contract is not compulsory for the hiring of an employee on a permanent contract. However, beware of the possible re-qualification of contracts and the risk of the absence of written documents between the parties.
Indeed, cases of disagreement on working conditions are common. The absence of a legal obligation does not preclude the legal security necessary for both parties, the employer and the employee, in relationships that can be a source of litigation.
The employment contract is concluded between two people, an employee and an employer.
An employment contract is said to be "the agreement by which a person, the employee, undertakes to place their activity at the disposal of another person or legal entity, the employer, under whose subordination they place themselves, in return for remuneration."
In order for there to be an employment contract, these three essential elements must be present: a work performance, a remuneration and a subordination link.
In principle, the employment contract is for an indefinite period of time. However, there are also many other forms of contract such as fixed-term employment contracts.
Is it possible to sign an employment contract by email? If it is a permanent contract for which an employment contract is not mandatory, the exchange of emails can indeed be a sufficient framework for the relationship. However, the same risks as those described above apply. The e-mails must be very precise in order to secure the relationship as much as possible.
Furthermore, there are no restrictions concerning the use of electronic signatures. It is completely authorized to sign work contracts.
