A contact in this Law refers to an agreement establishing, modifying and terminating the civil rights and obligations between subjects of equal footing
, that is, between natural persons, legal persons or other organizations
Q1. I would write "on a equal footing" to replace "of equal footing". Am I wrong?
Q2. Does this clause refer to a contract is not legalised if it is between a legal person and a natural person? I think they are not on an equal footing.
I think an employee belongs to the concept of "natural person", and a company belongs to the concept of "legal person". If so, why do people sign employment contract?
- I don't have any problem involved in myself.
- The defintions:
1 legal person
Legal person - definition of Legal person by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
2 natural person
Natural person - definition of Natural person by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
Re: Legal English
1 Yes, you probably could, but there is a slight change in meaning to me- 'on an equal footing' suggest to me that some sort of comparison or measurement has been made to establish this. A natural person can enter into a contract with a legal person and the idea of a legal person, as I understand it, is to raise the status of the entity to be at a level where it can be treated as a person and make contracts, sue, etc, with the obvious restrictions such as not being able to marry.
