Oral Contract Vs Implied Contract?

According to contract law, an oral contract is not considered an implied contract. An oral contract is an agreement that is agreed upon only by spoken communication. Although an oral contract originates from the mouth, it is common for a written contract to be created after the oral contract is stated.
In contract law, oral contracts are considered just as valid as written contracts. Some jurisdictions require that a contract be written up after an oral contract is made. Within this type of circumstance, the document must state that the original agreement was created verbally. 
An implied contract is an agreement that is not generally agreed upon. Instead, it is something that is more assumed to be followed. An example of this type of contract would be an employment contract where the employer does not specify hours but does specify the total amount of time required to be worked.
