This will make the contract binding on the employee.

Formalise the contract to prevent arguments about anything discussed in the job interview. The employee may mistakenly believe he’s entitled to certain conditions discussed, e.g. he claims after a month that the remuneration amount discussed in the job interview is more than the contract amount he’s receiving. Or he thought the company would pay him an additional car allowance or provide him with a company laptop.

Sample clause

“This employment contract becomes legally binding on ________ (a date of your choice), irrespective of when it is signed by ________ (company name) or __________ (the employee). The terms set out in this document form the entire contract between the parties and may not be varied unless by express agreement in writing and signed by both parties.
