Re: What is a contract?

Hi KL Siew,

I am a fresh graduate that recently signed a '3-year' contract. It was stated in the 'contract' that:-
1) 'We are pleased to confirm our offer to you for the position of ...".
2) "Generally it is the firm's strict policy that a mandatory probationary period applies
Can I know what is a valid contract?

The definition of "Contract of service" as in Section 2 of the Employment Act is quite clear about that:

"contract of service" means any agreement, whether oral or in writing and whether express or implied, whereby one person agrees to employ another as an employee and that the other agrees to serve his employer as his employee and includes an apprenticeship contract;

When a contract is signed, parties may be bound by it.
