For a labor contract, employees need to correctly identify the characteristics of the labor contract, actively practice, and form skills in signing and implementing labor contracts with the optimal choice, with low risk and cooperation between the parties in labor relations. Equipping employees with the necessary skills will be an important part of Vietnam's efforts to accelerate economic growth and continue its economic reform process. Raising the awareness for employees in using labor contracts as an important legal tool to protect their legitimate rights and interests. Building employees' skill sets that cover a variety of skill areas, including skills to sign and perform labor contracts; because empirical understandings of the relationship between the law, skills, and the wide range of contract labor are the driving force behind a high-quality workforce. It also means that understanding and proficiently using the skill system is a good factor to help Vietnamese employees proactively adapt to the fluctuations of labor contract relations in the current international integration period.
