Business Glossary provided by
An employee is an individual who works part-time or full-time under a contract of employment, whether oral or written, express or implied, and has recognized rights and duties. Employees typically contribute labor and expertise to an endeavor of an employer or of a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) and are usually hired to perform specific duties which are packaged into a job. In return, the employer is expected to provide compensation in the form of wages or salaries, and benefits, such as health insurance, paid vacation, and retirement plans. Labor laws regulate the relationship between employers and employees, protecting the latter from unfair labor practices, and determining employment rights and obligations.
