I know lots of employees are having issues with their contract, saying that it's too unfair. We also know that they have the choice to sign it or not... But the reality is, most employees have financial issues which forces them to sign the employment contract for the sake of earning money for their family.. So, what if a brave employee wants to bring it in court so that the court can analyze the contract and see if it is really unfair?

Can the employee challenge it to court? What if he lost the trial, is there any bad consequences to him? What if he wins the trial, should he fear that his employers might bully him at work until he decides to leave?... Is it really wise to challenge the fairness of your contract?

First, don't sign and contract with unfair terms.

Second, if you signed it and challenge the terms later, you can do that. But that will be waste of time, money and energy.

Third, read up the Employment Act to know the minimum terms and conditions an employees can enjoy. With this, an employee will know whether the contract is fair or not.
