The paper "The Relationship between Suppliers of Precision Equipment in India to Its Customer in the UK" is a good example of a law assignment. International laws are a cord of ethics that govern business people all over the world. International law is divided into two categories namely; the public law and the private law. Public laws govern people from different nations while private laws govern people, businesses, and non-governmental organizations from different countries if they have a dispute (DiMatteo & Dhooge 2005, pp. 5). Countries are only governed by these laws if they become a member of international laws.
These laws were put in place after the First World War by the different countries in order to settle the disputes. The disputes are taken to international court which looks in legal matters that the two or more sides are in contention. Private laws are further divided into other categories like business laws, commercial laws, financial laws etc. It is under business laws that contract law is learnt. The contract is a legal agreement between two or more parties seeking the assistance of the other party.
In contract, all terms and conditions are well spelt out and signed by the involved parties. There are 16 types of contracts in which the conditions and terms vary depending on the type of contract. Due to the diversity and the nature of the contract, the issue of commercial contract contention has long been argued and changed by laws. Since a contract is a bond between parties such as the seller and the buyer, employers and the employees, business owners to customers and companies to stakeholder, it, therefore, forms the basis of all commercial relationships.
But since it is dynamic, the contention of contract as the basis of commercial relationship is a valid argument though it needs to be proved. Though at times these bond is broken e. g. by lack of competence and breach of contract, the government should come in and protect both parties were a disagreement arise (Murphy 2006, pp. 17). The employment of workers The contract between the workers and the employees is well defined by the governments of individual parties in that, the governments abide by the stated laws to protect the rights of workers.
In the contract, the terms which include the salary, safety, the moral and social standards of the workers are well stipulated (Burnham 2011, pp. 84). In the light of these, the employers are the one with no contention and therefore the contracts should be adhered to, in favor of the workers. The reason why the contracts are signed is that the employers are fond of terminating employment based on the employees’ performance and competence. Therefore, the contract acts as the protector of employees not to be subjected to this unfairness.
On the other hand, the contract serves as the protector of the employers so as not to be sued by the employees in case they are not satisfied with the employers’ working conditions. In other occasions, contract acts as a legal document which can be used in a court. The nature of the contract signed can vary depending on the initial conditions. The conditions and terms can also be negotiated to suit both parties. Due to this, there are many forms of the employer to employee contracts depending on what was agreed in the negotiations.
As described by the above explanations, the contract of employment is the cornerstone of the relationship between the employer and the worker. It is also the foundation of all legal matter that may arise. For an employee to be formally a worker of the employer, he or she must sign the contract and if need be, seek legal advise on how to negotiate the terms and conditions best to suit both parties. Without a contract, the worker may not be fully recognized as a worker and may not enjoy the rights of a worker fully.
The contract of employment, therefore, applies only when both the worker and the employer sign either a formal or informal contract. Failure to sign the contract shows that one of the two parties is not fully satisfied with terms and conditions. If on the other hand the contract is signed and one party breaches the agreement then legal action is taken and damages are hence paid. Contract conditions are put in the letter of appointment.
