Employment contract back dating ha2016 liquidating trust v
I have been working as an independent contractor for a company part time, but with ever-increasing hours. Is this something where they're backdating your start date by 6 months? But I am still wary of agreeing to anything without an offer in-hand.
They've recently said they want to make me a full-time offer. Or to, say, the first of the current month so they just have to pay the most recent monthly bill you submitted and then everything after that is paid as an employee rather than accounting for a partial month of consulting and a partial month of salaried employment. You might be completely right on the partial month of consulting thing. If it concerns you, ask why the start date would be backdated.
These generally include: The ‘contract date’ is the date often written on the cover or last page of the contract.
The ‘signature date’ is, unsurprisingly, the date written next to or below the signature of each party, showing the date they signed the contract.
Drafting and executing a document after an event occurs, but in a manner that accurately reflects the date on which the event transpired, is a permissible form of backdating.
There are ways, however, to ensure that past disclosures remain confidential and then preserve that confidentiality moving forward. While adding a retroactive date to a legal agreement is not uncommon, you need to make sure you don’t come out of left field with a retroactive NDA in your hand after weeks of cooperative negotiations, conversations or partnerships.
Contracts can also, confusingly, contain defined dates such as ‘commencement date’, ‘effective date’ or ‘start date’.
These dates indicate when the contract or parts of it are due to have legal effect, if these dates are different to the contract and/or signature dates.
This date is usually the date which both parties consider to be the date the contract was made and became effective, unless there is a different defined ‘Effective Date’ or ‘Commencement Date’.
If there is a date at the beginning of the contract which is not the date of the last signature this can lead to confusion or be of no effect in interpreting when the contract actually began.
