Do my employees need a contract of employment?

When clients come to us for advice on any given matter, one of the very first things we ask to see is the written documentation which sets out their terms and conditions of employment.

An employer is required to provide its employees with a written statement of terms and conditions of employment (often referred to as a “contract of employment”) within two months of their employment commencing.Further, the failure to have written statements of terms and conditions, could increase any tribunal award by two to four weeks’ pay. Remember, contracts benefit both you and your employees. They ensure employees know where they stand and what’s expected of them, and they give you a written record to fall back on if they breach them.


So, where do you start? What needs to be included? That’s where we come in. We take the complication out of contracts of employment. From help differentiating between the different types and drafting watertight contracts that are bespoke to your business, to ongoing amendments, we’ve got you covered from start to finish.
