What is a 1-click contract?

A one click contract is like any other contract, but it’s presented in a way that allows the person signing it to do so by simply clicking on it. With very few exceptions, any contract can be signed with a single click on a website, from a phone, in an email — anywhere you meet your customers digitally, you can deliver a 1-click contract.

What is an Employment Agreement?

A formal agreement that specifies the conditions of the relationship between an employee and an employer including compensation and expectations.

Who signs it?

An authorized signer of the company and the employee.

How is it typically signed?

Actual paper or via traditional eSignature like DocuSign, HelloSign, etc.

Why is this signing method not ideal?

It’s a waste of paper and/or storage intensive with the pdfs. Extra typing and clicks for the accepting employee.

How to turn an Employment Agreement into a 1-click Contract

How does an Employment Agreement work as a 1-click contract?

Uploading your standard offer letter verbiage into PactSafe. Setting up ‘tokens’ for the individually specific parts of the agreement (i.e. name, title, compensation, start date, etc). Sending the Employment Agreement template with completed tokens specific to the Employee’s employment arrangement to an authorized signer and the employee. Clicking accept indicates acceptance of the Agreement by the authorized signer on behalf of the Company and the employee.

Why does an Employment Agreement work better as a 1-click contract?

No paper. No entering your information or choosing your signature style when signing. Easily updated for each new hire. Seamless process for acceptance. Review the agreement. One click to accept. You’re done.

Is a 1-click contract legally binding?

1-click contracts are absolutely binding. Also known as “clickwraps,” courts have enforced millions of contracts accepted by a single click. PactSafe’s platform was built to help ensure 1-click contracts are created in compliance with all the best practices established in 1000’s of court cases over the past 20+ years.
