Contracts of Employment

If you work for someone you must have a Contract of Employment – it is a legal requirement and forms part of the Employment Rights Act which means that anyone employing someone else has to provide a statement of the main Terms and Condition of Employment within 2 months of starting work.

If you employ people and don’t provide a Contract of Employment then you potentially miss the chance to document the employment relationship that you might want. If you are employed without a contract then you have no indication of what is expected by your neither Employers nor what you can expect from them.

mosshaselhurst Solicitors can help by creating a Contract of Employment that details and sets out what is expected by the employer of the employee and will cover the basic issues as an absolute minimum. These will include:-

  • Basic pay
  • Employment conditions
  • Responsibilities
  • Duties

  • Rights
  • Minimum notice periods
  • Sickness pay
  • Holiday entitlement
  • Maternity procedure
  • Grievance procedure
  • Pension
