The following agreement is written for Candidate advice, guidance and potential employment protection.
Please read the draft Seafarers Employment Agreement (SEA), click here to read and understand it to be similar to that which should be offered to you when engaged in yacht employment. It encompasses as far as possible the yachts obligations to you under MLC 2006. It is a good example, as there is not a standard, SEA.
SEA’s are required to comply with current applicable national laws and regulations and should include any Collective Bargaining Agreement that may apply to them. Together they should not be less favourable than the minimum standards of MLC.
MLC gives the Candidate the right of sufficient time to study the content before and after signing an SEA with the Client. You should also receive a copy of the document.
Further general advice is recorded below and it is recommended that that you satisfy yourself of these items at or subsequent to the interview/s.
You should be sure that all sections of the SEA are completed and acceptable to you.
Where a yacht does not need to comply with MLC or flies the flag of a country which has not ratified MLC you should ensure you are happy with the SEA offered. Click here to see flag states that have currently ratified MLC 2006.
