Employment Agreement Template

GP registrars negotiating employment can download a free employment agreement template to ensure they cover the major conditions and terms of employment.


The agreement has been created for use by all registrars in the 2017 and 2018 training years. Make sure that you retain a copy of your signed contract for reference during the term.

What's inside the template?

The employment agreement template contains the standard contractual agreements as per the Fair Work Act and the 2017-2018 National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars. The employment agreement also contains a schedule that is suitable for both the registrar and practice. While it is a standard contractual agreement, room has been provided to add additional items and requirements.
