contracts

agreements between parties in which considerations or rewards are offered by all contracting parties. Contracts may be written, verbal or implied and all are binding, the degree lessening as the probability of misunderstanding increases. Salaries, continuity of employment, out-of-hours attendance, weekend work are some of the considerations offered in veterinary employment contracts.

binding-out contracts
one of the parties binds himself or herself not to participate in some activity, e.g. practice within a certain area, in return for some consideration such as being employed as an assistant.
implied contracts
leaving a patient in a veterinarian's care is an implied contract by the owner to pay the costs of the attention provided. This may be estimated beforehand and the veterinarian may be obliged to adhere to the estimate, especially if the difference is large. It depends on the firmness of the offer.
