A contract of employment is an agreement between you and your employer. There is always a contract between you and your employer, even if you do not have anything in writing, because you have agreed to work for your employer in return for pay. Your contract of employment will include a number of other details that have been agreed between you and your employer. These are called terms and conditions and can be verbal or written arrangements.
