Article Summary

Abstract

Some employers have agreements/policies. When present, you will need to review them and acknowledge that you read them.

  • Agreements are evidence of mutual accord or understanding between two or more legally competent parties, about the relative duties and rights regarding current or future performance. Although a binding contract can (and often does) result from an agreement, an agreement typically documents the give-and-take of a negotiated settlement and a contract specifies the minimum acceptable standard of performance.

  • Policies include a set of basic principles and associated guidelines formulated and enforced by the governing body of an organization, to direct and limit its actions in pursuit of long-term goals.

  1. Review an agreement/policy.

  2. Acknowledge that you read it. Some agreements/policies could require that you use an eSignature to sign/submit it.
