Creating a Link Table

Hi.  I am wondering how to build a link table.  I see the value of it but I'm understanding how I'd go about actually constructing one.  For example, if I have 3 fact tables how would I go about creating this

 

 

Fact_Employ

Emp ID

Emp Name

Emp Hire Date

 

Fact_Sales

Sales ID

Sales Amount

Sales Date

 

Fact_Contract

Contract ID

Units

Date

 

So, I think I understand that the link table needs the primary keys.  However, I don't know what to put for each row.  Do I do Sales ID blank blank blank then under it I do Contract ID blank blank blank?  Is there any guides for building a link table or an example table I can look at.  

 

Sorry if this doesn't make sense, I'm having trouble articulating my question.
