The storage period for employment contracts, their annexes and agreements on additional terms of the employment contract is 50 years after the termination of the contract. It is also mandatory to ensure that both parties to the employment contract have access to the document. Therefore, when deciding on how to sign an employment contract, companies should consider ensuring the signing, preservation and availability of the employment contract throughout the set period.
The eIDAS Regulation provides a signature with a high level of trust – a Qualified Electronic Signature. It is suitable for signing employment contracts and their annexes, as it is equivalent to a written signature, and reliable not only at national but also at EU level.
Qualified Electronic Signature:
