It implies that the employer shall gainfully employ the employee in a capacity as specified in the terms and conditions of the Employment Agreement.The Employment Agreement shall detail the date from which employment shall begin. It will also state the rights and duties of the employee as well as any extra duties as may be required from time to time. The work timings of the employee shall clearly state a start time right until he or she is finished for the day as well as require that the employee stays on late, if so necessitated by work requirements.The employee shall receive all the necessary information pertaining to standards of performing the work, rules, policies and other regulations as may be in force as well as all manuals describing the working environment. Usually the employee is given an Employee Handbook to educate him or her about the company’s policies and goals as well as what is required of the employee. These aforementioned rules, regulations, standards for performing tasks, policies and manuals may be continuously upgraded and the employee is bound to adhere to such amendments and changes.The employee will begin work from a specified date and shall continue working with the employer until such time as his or her services are terminated or until a date specified as being the termination date. Either party may discontinue with the agreement for any reason or a notice period for ending the agreement may be specified in the document.Compensation paid to the employee by the employer shall be clearly specified as a fixed amount per annum paid an amount as specified in the Employment Agreement, to be paid either every week, month, or every two weeks as well as all “fringe benefits” that the employee is entitled to receive in the course of their employment.Termination of the Employment Agreement may be due to a variety of reasons. Some of these could be:- Death of the Employee
- Non performance or unsatisfactory discharge of duties assigned to the employee in spite of notice and warnings to that effect
- The employer’s economic plight may warrant termination of the agreement due to circumstances beyond the control of the employerAfter the employee leaves the employment of the employer, the arrangement may lay down restrictions that prevent the employee from engaging in like or any other viable business that may be in direct competition as that of the employer.All disputes arising from the execution of the Employment Agreement will be subject to binding arbitration of the two parties in most cases. Individual parties to the Employment Agreement shall appoint one arbitrator for themselves and the arbitrators so selected will choose another arbitrator and all arbitration will be administrated following the rules of the American Arbitration Association which may be in force and effect at that point of time.Prior notice is required should the Employment Agreement be assigned and should such assignment be effected it would require mutual consent and approval of every such assignment.The Employment Agreement constitutes the entire understanding of all terms and conditions between employer and employee unless it needs to be amended, in which case, a separate written agreement shall be signed between the two parties.The Employment Agreement shall bear the signature of the employer and the employee. It shall also bear the date on which it was signed.

Little White Lies, True Health and Fitness

Let’s talk a little bit about the little white lies we tell ourselves to give us the out, to talk ourselves into being okay with being heavy or to justify our absences from the gym. These little white lies hold us back from creating a healthy and fit body. So how do we take this way of thinking and change it? This is where we use your internal personal trainer. Stop telling yourself you are happy the way you are; expect more of yourself. Use the personal trainer you are developing within to squash the little white lies, including the lie that you are happy with who you are if you are fat.There is nothing happy about being fat or obese and not being able to control your eating habits or weight. If you are truly happy, I guarantee you would be happier if you lost the weight, because no one wants to carry around an extra 50 or 100 pounds everywhere they go. I know this because if you gave a person who is fit an extra 50 or 100 pounds to carry around everywhere they went, they would be very unhappy. Saying you are happy with who you are or happy with being heavy is a cop-out, and since we’re talking about little white lies, I’m going to call you out on it bluntly.I know you would be happier not carrying the extra weight around because not only is the weight a physical burden, but it exposes you to prejudice every day of your life. And being judged (negatively) everywhere you go about the way you look cannot make anyone happy. It’s a fact of life in our society that there are prejudices about people who are overweight. They are considered lazy, greedy, weak, and/or lacking willpower or self-control. People do not look at fat people and say to themselves, “I know she’s beautiful inside.” As human beings, our reactions to visual stimuli are thoughts that appraise or judge the form, without an immediate filter of political correctness. So I’m not going to talk about obesity in a politically correct way. I’m not going to mince words in order to save you a little embarrassment, because my goal is to encourage you to be accountable for your negative or unhealthy habits.So now that we’ve dispensed with the use of little white lies to accept our extra weight, let’s discuss how we can use the little white lies for motivation. If we return to the idea of self-assessment, we can use our imaginations to envision the fitter and leaner self we desire, and then we can create and write down some little white lies to help us with the process. For example, if you envision the way your face will look without excess weight, you might say, I love my beautiful, pronounced cheekbones. It is a little white lie, but one that can motivate us into creating a positive self-image. It’s a projection of where we are going. Those little white lies are a forecast of the end of your journey, and they are important because they start the process of changing the mind. Telling yourself you are beautiful during your assessment because you can see a slender person who is not obese in your mind’s eye creates a positive change.These little white lies can help create a detailed positive image that, once created, can lead to more positive thoughts. Let’s say you are imagining your arms are smaller, your face is more sculpted, your thighs are thinner, and then you can imagine the smaller person within. If you can imagine the person within as a stronger person, you will become stronger. We become what we imagine; we will become what our mind’s eye sees. This is a great strategy to use even before setting goals because during the journey this is exactly what’s happening. As you are losing weight you are becoming stronger. The simple fact that you are exercising will help to compact the bones in your body which will make your bone density stronger. Not having to carry around the extra weight will make you more flexible, more mobile, and even faster.Telling yourself this ahead of time, before it actually happens, allows you to create that positive foundation we discussed earlier. Moreover, your mind will become stronger. At the end of your journey when your body is stronger, you are carrying around less weight, your muscles are showing, and your body is sculpted, your mind will be stronger. This can be for many people a complete transformation of a former self. Imagine you are the caterpillar who is beautiful — fat and chunky– but still beautiful. The caterpillar is carrying more weight in order to make it through its metamorphosis in the cocoon. That caterpillar then emerges as a lightweight, sleek butterfly. The butterfly that was once the caterpillar shows a significant change and so will you.
