According to the CDHA 2015 Job Market and Employment Survey, many dental hygienists are working without any type of employment contract. Additionally, many dental hygienists are unsure whether they are an employee or self-employed. Although the number of dental hygienists with a contract has increased over 2013 and 2011, many questions arise when thinking about employment contracts, such as:

  • What is an employment contract?
  • What clauses should an employment contract contain? How binding are they?
  • What is the difference between being an employee and a contractor/self-employed?
  • What is the Employment Standards Act?
  • Am I covered under the Employment Standards Act and other government legislative bodies if I am an employee versus a contractor/self-employed?
  • What clauses raise red flags?
  • What constitutes termination?
