Thank you for your kind words:

Lentil as Anything is a community organisation that supports disadvantaged people through training, employment, housing, food and social support. As a not-for-profit organization, we struggle to find the resources to manage our business operations and rely on the generosity of professionals such as LawLive.

We are very appreciative of the support LawLive has provided. Not only were the staff gracious when we asked for assistance, they were eager to help

Employment

An employment relationship between an employee and employer arises out of a contract to perform services (ie. Work). This is so whether the contract is in writing or not. The general principles relating to contract law therefore apply to every employment contract.

An employment relationship is recognised as being a relationship of trust, dependence and confidence. This imposes duties at common law on employees such as:

  • to follow lawful and reasonable instructions;
  • to act in good faith in the course of carrying out his/her employment duties;
  • to avoid conflicts between his/her personal interests and the interests of the employer;
  • not to improperly use the information and property of his/her employer;
  • not to disparage or cause deliberate damage or harm to the employer.

Prudent employers ensure that the terms upon which they employ people are clearly set out in writing and that the written document complies with the current law.
