Employment Contracts: The Foundation of Successful Working Relationships in Malta
In any successful business venture, strong working relationships are critical. A clear and comprehensive employment contract lays the essential groundwork for this relationship, defining expectations, obligations, and resolving potential misunderstandings. At Contact Advisory Services Ltd. (CAS Ltd), we understand that employment contracts are much more than just a formality. We craft legally sound documents tailored to your business needs, promoting compliance with Maltese employment law and protecting your interests as an employer.

Why a Well-Drafted Employment Contract Matters
An employment contract serves as a roadmap for the employer-employee relationship, safeguarding both parties and reducing the risk of future conflicts. Key benefits of a well-written contract include:

  • Clarity and Transparency: A clear outline of job duties, hours of work,compensation, benefits, and leave entitlements minimizes ambiguity and promotes mutual understanding right from the start.
  • Legal Protection: In the event of a dispute, a well-constructed employment contract protects both the employer and the employee by clearly defining their rights and responsibilities.
  • Minimized Misunderstandings: By addressing potential areas of conflict (e.g.,termination procedures, confidentiality expectations) upfront, misunderstandings that could damage the working relationship are kept at bay.
  • Attracting Top Talent: Clear, comprehensive contracts send a signal that your company values employees and operates in a professional manner, making you a more attractive employer.


Essential Elements of a Maltese Employment Contract
While specific features will vary based on your industry and your needs, some core elements are required for any valid employment contract in Malta. Our specialists ensure those are in place, plus provide guidance on:

  • Terms of Employment: Covering details like job title, start date, probationary period (if applicable), work location, and hours of work.
  • Compensation and Benefits: Clearly outlining base salary, bonuses,commissions, overtime pay, vacation, sick leave, social security contributions, and any additional benefits your company offers.
  • Termination Procedures: Outlining the procedures for both employer and employee-initiated termination of employment, including notice periods and severance packages if applicable.
  • Confidentiality and Intellectual Property: Protecting your trade secrets,patents, and other sensitive business information with well-defined clauses.
  • Restrictive Covenants: If applicable, carefully crafted non-compete and non-solicitation clauses tailored to your industry, balancing protection of your interests with fairness to the employee.
  • Governing Law and Dispute Resolution: Specifying that Maltese law applies,and considering clauses for alternative dispute resolution like mediation.
