Staff accommodation contracts are legally binding on you and your employees. These agreements must be in accordance with state law on landlords and tenants. If you enter into a housing contract with an employee. B, you must respect state law with respect to dismissal procedures and other deportation procedures if the employee does not move in time after the dismissal. Your housing contract should establish housing rules. They may, for example, contain a provision expressly prohibiting domestic animals, indoor smoking and possession of alcohol by minors. You can also set quiet hours from a certain time in the evening to a specific time in the morning. If you wish to reserve the right to inspect the premises, insert a provision that specifies this. An employee`s housing contract may stipulate that your employee must have all services on their behalf; this frees you from liability if pension benefits are not paid. Conversely, your agreement may stipulate that you will pay utilities.
This approach makes sense if the staff accommodation is not in a totally different structure than your main residence. If you keep the services on your behalf, you can add a reasonable fee to your employee`s monthly rent — if you ask for rent. It`s up to you to decide to calculate the monthly rent. Some employers do, others do not. If you decide to calculate the rent, you can include a clause stating that you intend to collect rent on paycheck deductions. Employment contracts are generally executed by employers who offer summer or agricultural jobs. It is typical for dairy and ranching staff to obtain housing contracts. This type of job often requires employees to move from their place of residence because the work is seasonal or simply it is more convenient for employees to live in the field because of operating hours. Employee-housing contracts create a landlord-tenant relationship between the employer and the worker. If you are considering making housing available to staff, you would be well advised to have a housing contract for employees; without one, you won`t be able to remember your expectations. Your employees must have a copy of the agreement, as they must be aware of the terms of the agreement and what you can expect from you with regard to your responsibilities.
