Contract of Employment

Do Employers Need Employment Contracts?

Yes, it is advisable but not mandatory to have documentation including written up to date Employment contracts and staff handbooks. Whether an employee is temporary or permanent, having a signed written record outlining your working relationship, their role/duties as well as targets/expectations helps protect the employer in the event of a staff dispute.

What Should a Contract of Employment Contain?

Every business is different but the key elements of a basic employment contract relevant to all businesses should include names of employer and employee, start dates, location, hours of work, job description, entitlements etc. If you do not have written contracts or you feel your existing contracts are not up-to-date call our helpline now.
