Employers and employees are fundamentally free to design the content of the employment contract. However, you have to observe the existing provisions of laws, collective agreements or works agreements if these are to be applied to the employment relationship. The content of the employment contract can e.g. B. Include:

Social benefits: The social benefits should be mentioned in detail.
Working time: The working hours are to be stated as regular working hours.

Inability to work: Cases of inability to work through no fault of their own, e.g. B. Wedding, move.
Non-competition clause: Employees are not allowed to conduct their own business in their branch of trade without the consent of the employer.
Trial period: The length of the probationary period should be stated in the employment contract.
