Q: We have an employee who has not signed their contract of employment, given us no reasons as to why and thinks that on that basis it cannot be enforceable. Is that true?

A: We would prefer the contract to be signed to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding. Talk to the employee and ascertain the reasons why they do not want to sign the contract. It could be that they have misunderstood something in it. However, to answer your question, the longer they continue to attend work without making any specific objections to any of the contractual requirements or without refusing to perform any of them, the easier it will be for the Company to maintain that the employee has accepted the terms impliedly.
