Employment Contract Template


Having an appropriate employment contract in place before your registrar commences in your practice is an incredibly important piece of the puzzle.

While the two are interdependent to an extent, this contract is distinct from the training agreement, serving as the document to which you and your registrar will refer if there is ever anything in question about their employment conditions.

Getting this right is not always easy. An overly-lengthy contract is rarely read in full, and a contract that’s oversimplified is liable to under-explain the two-way protections – rights and responsibilities of employer and employee – that need to be set out in an employment agreement.

GPSA has proudly supported our members since 2016 with an employment contract template developed in line with both Fair Work Australia’s National Employment Standards (NES) and the National Terms and Conditions for the Employment of Registrars (NTCER). As our 2022 review of the NTCER with GPRA resulted in staged changes across 2023.1 – 2024.2, it is important to always use the correct template for the employment period in question.
