Employment Contract Writing

What Is A Contract Of Employment

Employment Contracts are an agreement that employers should have in place with all of their employees. They set out the key terms and conditions of employment between the two parties and act as a frame of reference if a dispute should ever arise such as what the length of notice periods are for an employee or clarification of statutory entitlements such as pay and holidays.

Avoid The Pitfalls

Often employers, particularly those who are just about to employ people for the first time don’t realise that providing a contract of employment to a new starter is very important, and as a minimum it is a legal requirement to provide a written statement of main terms and conditions to most employees within the first 2 months of their employment commencing. Failure to do this could result in a claim arising.

Choosing The Right Type Of Employment Contract

One of the reasons for delaying this could be that employers don’t necessarily know what should be included within an employment contract, nor do they know what type of employment contract fits their business needs best. This can be a minefield for employers and therefore having some simple guidance on what to include and what type of employment contract to use can save lots of time and hassle.
