Is there an obligation to sign a work agreement between employee and employer?
It’s very important to know, Although, apparently, there is no law requiring the employer and the employee to sign any agreement or contract regulating the contract for the work needs in between, however,the Worker’s Notice law and the job applicant (working conditions and screening and acceptance procedures for work), 2002 requires each employer to provide his employees with a written notice detailing the working conditions (including working hours,social conditions, wages, etc.) no later than 30 days.
Thus, on the face of it, there is no legal obligation to sign an orderly employment agreement or contract, but there is another legal obligation that requires the employer to issue an orderly and detailed document. Therefore, it is preferable, both from the employee and the employer’s point of view, to spend the necessary time drafting and drafting a stable labor agreement, which will anchor the employment contract, on all its many sides, between the employee and the employer.

What is a labor agreement?

A labor agreement is a legal contract designed to anchor in an orderly, organized and legal manner all the rights and obligations that exist between the employee and the employer.

The interest of the employer versus the interest of the employee

It is customaryto whisper that the main “profiter” from signing anorderly labor agreement is the employer, since, in many cases, the signing of such an agreement comes on his own initiative.

What happens if the labor agreement includes Pym’s trade that goes against the provisions of the law?

There are quite a few cases in which employees are signed labor agreements that include clauses that are contrary to the laws of the State of Israel in general, and in particular– labor laws. Whether this is done without the knowledge of the law or intentionally done by the employer, such clauses, which constaminate to the laws of the State of Israel, do not obligate the employees, even if they appear in the labor agreement signed by the employer, since the law states that there are rights for an employee that he is not entitled towaive (such as rest hours, etc.) and that a work agreement can only raise the level of the worker’s rights under the law, and not to reduce their validity.
