Lately Law Firm ALTERNA’s attorney-at-law and partner Annika Vait wrote about a decision of the Supreme Court of Estonia that assessed the consideration of an employment contract to be entered into when the employee commences work, but when the employment contract is not in a written form yet.
Annika explains that the Employment Contracts Act foresees that an employment contract shall be entered into in writing. At the same time, it allows that if the employment contract is not in a written form, it shall also be deemed entered into if an employee commences work.
The decision of the Supreme Court that Annika wrote about explained that, in order to consider an employment contract entered into by the employee commencing work, it is also required that the employer shall not be against it. Basically, it means that the employment contract can not be considered entered into when the employee shows up to work, but that the employer also has to agree with it.
