What are the contract types at IAS K?

Full-time contracts

Full-time contracts are offered to permanent employees who work a full workweek, usually 35 hours or more. These contracts usually include information about benefits, paid holidays, vacation time, sick time and retirement plans. Even further, some full-time contracts present new employees with opportunities for other benefits, like professional development opportunities or workplace perks. Full-time contracts are almost always written contracts that include many components, and employers normally want to be thorough and clear when offering such an extensive agreement.

Part-time contracts

Part-time contracts are extended to employees who work a reduced number of hours compared to full-time employees. Typically, part-time contracts are offered to those who serve less than 35 hours per week and often include some of the same stipulations and protections as full-time contracts. Our part-time schedules detail the employee's flexibilities, weekly schedule and rate of pay. However, it is important to note that part-time contracts usually do not include information regarding insurance, salary or PTO—all benefits typically reserved for full-time employees.

Casual contracts

Casual contracts are usually extended to employees who work on a seasonal or temporary basis. Through casual contracts, employers typically outline that they will only pay employees for completed work and that the company isn't required to offer a minimum amount of shifts or work hours. In addition, the contracts sometimes state that employees are not mandated to take any shifts or work hours offered. Casual contracts offer both employees and employers flexibility in their agreement. However, they are typically only used to specify short-term employment relationships that may or may not be renewed after the duration of employment expires.

Fixed-term contracts

A fixed-term contract is a highly specific and written contract extended to employees who only work for a set amount of time or until they complete a specific task. Fixed-term contracts are commonplace for temporary or contract workers who may take over a job for a specified amount of time or help an organization fill a gap during a time of need. Fixed-term employees often receive the same benefits and protections as other full-time or part-time employees during their employment tenure, which can be detailed in the contract. Additionally, many fixed-term contracts can lead to permanent contracts once they are up for renewal.

Consultancy contracts

A Consultancy Agreement is typically offered to an employee or firm hired to complete a specific project, such as designing a website, writing an article, taking photos or doing home renovations. Consultancy contracts outline the limitations of hours, project details, salary and payment terms. These contracts protect consultants from receiving late payments or from any project-related challenges that may occur. Consultancy contracts do not often include information about benefits like insurance or PTO, as consultants are usually considered self-employed and sometimes even work other full-time jobs.
