Did you know that your staff are entitled to a written statement of your main employment terms within 2 months of starting work and that many disputes can be avoided by having employment contracts in place?
An employment contract will set out your employment rights, responsibilities and duties or ‘terms’ of the contract and will help you if disagreements arise later.
This will ensure agreement and consistency is reached on key areas such as:
- Pay and whether it is weekly or monthly
- Working hours
- Holiday entitlement
- Job title
- Notice periods
- Job location
