Did you know that, as an employer, you have a legal duty to provide your employees - including part-timers - with a written statement of their terms and conditions of employment within 8 weeks of their start date? This statement (often referred to as the contract of employment) sets out the 'main particulars' of their employment.
However, a true contract of employment is more than that.
A contract of employment is a legally binding agreement between employer and employee.
An employment contract aims to minimise the risk of subsequent disagreements.
Incomplete, inaccurate or absent written contracts of employment can result in disputes on parting company or even increased compensation being awarded at an employment tribunal.
