合約 contract

名詞(物件)

相似字 agreement
搭配詞 sign a contract, the contract between A and B, terms of the contract

【單字解析】

在法治社會中,許多場合都有可能必須簽署合約(sign a contract),比如房屋租賃、買賣契約、勞資合作等等。合約簽署前,絕對必須先細讀其中載明的每項合約條款(terms of the contract),確定雙方立約人(the contract between two parties)權益都受到公平對等的保障,否則一旦簽名後,便產生法律效力,就算是馬關條約也只能自認倒楣了。

【例句】

這名年輕男子與這家公司簽立了一紙三年工作合約。
The young man signed a three-year employment contract with this company.

這份雇主與雇員間的合約,有一部分是由這些條文所組成。
These clauses form part of the contract between the employer and the employee.

在簽字之前,必須先對合約內的重要條款進行協商而後同意。
Negotiate and agree to the most critical terms of the contract before you sign anything.
