What if an employer wants me to sign a contract?

2. Make sure you understand the contract

Read the contract carefully. Once you sign it, you might not be able to make changes unless your employer agrees.

You might want to ask for more time before signing the contract if:

  • you need help to understand what the contract says
  • you want to get legal advice about the contract

But an employer might want you to decide quickly. And if the employer cancels the job offer before you sign the contract, there might not be anything you can do.
